GWH> Smokeping can send emails to you.
GWH> Scroll down to the section on 'Alerts'.

It will send alerts if a *target* misses, but I want an alert when a
*smokeping slave* doesn't report any results, say for 30 minutes, or 4
hours or a day... etc. [Who watches the watchers.]
I'm using SP and nagios too, but that doesn't help me know if a
smokeping slave has gone off the rails - I suppose I could write some
kind of nagios plug-in that would check that - but that's quite a bit
farther than I was wanting to go.
