svcmon project is a versatile TCP service watchdog, that can optionally send email alerts when services are detected as being down.

svcmon is written using Perl, and requires a few "standard" Perl modules, which should be included as part of your base Perl installation:

Net::SMTP
IO::Socket
Getopt::Std

Installation:

Download the tarball, and extract to an appropriate location, e.g.:

# cd /usr/local
# wget http://www.zazzybob.com/svcmon/svcmon.tar.gz
# tar xzf ./svcmon.tar.gz
# ls ./svcmon
README bin etc

There are TWO configuration files (discussed below):

# cd /usr/local/svcmon
# ls etc
svcmail.conf svcmon.conf

Ensure that svcmon.pl is executable before continuing:

# chmod u+x /usr/local/svcmon/bin/svcmon.pl
