Wish list - hack to monitor a server

I'm thinking of something that will monitor a NTP server and send 
mail/SMS/whatever when it finds troubles.

I can see two types of trouble.  One is when the server isn't responding.  
The other is that one or more of the upstream servers or refclocks it is 
using stops responding.

There are lots of possible variations/options/parameters.

This should probably wait until Eric gets the python library ready for use 
under ntpq.  I mention it now because I thought of it and/or it might provide 
input to the requirements for that library.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
