Likewise. In the earliest days of my buildbots, I kept a very close
eye on them (which was good; they had some occasional network
glitches, which I had to resolve), but once they became stable, I
stopped watching. Now, I almost never check them - as long as the VM's
running, I basically assume all's well. It'd be very helpful if a
computer could auto-email any time they're down for any length of
time. Is the info available in some way? Could I write a little
monitor at my end that asks every hour if my buildbots can be seen?
