Ah. Poor you. Well, there is also pyro. It should run on all OS, and it
comes with a name-service. With this, it's actually possible and
probably quite easy to have all your respective clients/workers/agents
connect themselves to central monitoring instance, and posting more or
less accurately their state.

The configuration needed should be minimal, and depending on your
network setup even trivial because there is some broadcasting detection
ala bonjour available. The worst that can happen is that you have to
spread knowledge of a specific pyro server through a string like


or some such.
