I think there are two ways - either extend monit to support callbacks to
other monit nodes as outlined Christian or to have 'independent' system

What about both?

This is an interesting idea Christian, but I have a feeling that we
are sort of discussing two separate ideas here where the two ideas
does not rule each other out.

1) Having monit servers speaking with each other could be excellent
for syncronizing a network of monit servers as well as providing some
sort of failover functionality and dependencies between monit
servers. But for reporting to a central location I still think that

2) Using web-services (SOAP/XML) is a better choiche. The reason is
that we can concentrate on implementing reporting in a seperat
application and only extend the monit http servers with functionality
for speaking SOAP. This way, we can keep much code out of the core
monit server.

I agree - Christians though about network dependency is interesting. When i needed to do similar dependency in the past, i wrote startup script extended by similar test. This monit feature will generaly simplify such startup scripts, will allow to use standard rc scripts without modification with dependency on other network service, so my +1 for it.

Agreement to second point to :)
