This is a good idea: I'm thinking I'll write a perl script
for NRG that would produce a plain text report of (NRG) data
collection failure over some arbitrary reporting interval
(default one day.)  

So then cron could send this report every night to provide a
terse report of "monitoring availability" over the last day.

Is that what you're thinkin' of?  

If so, maybe send me an example of how you'd like the report
and I'll cook something up.

If not, tell us more about what you mean by "textual report
containing availability statistics".
