The Right Tool For The Job, in this case, is Nagios, either with it's own
NRPE-based resource monitoring, or SNMP-based monitoring.  The SNMP way is
cleaner, but it does require the proper configuration of more different
technologies than NRPE/Nagios.

(All way off-topic for a cfengine list, though, of course)

You have a 16-bit quantity, but 5 bits of it are here and 2 bits of it are
there... and 2 bits of it are back here and 3 bits of it are up there.  The
C code to extract useful data had so many >> and << operators in it that it
looked like the C++ version of "hello world".   -- Matt Roberds, ASR
