Let the fruit fly... But isn't this more or less what SNMP is supposed
to do? (i.e. Standard Network Monitoring Protocol...)
I think you have the right concept, though. One of the main reason
"monitoring sucks" is that they are all vertically integrated. There
is no way to "mix and match"
pieces easily. There are no standard protocols for moving from one
level to the next.
