I think it really depends on the type of monitoring you'd like to do and the
type of tool you're trying to use now. For example, we use Nagios to monitor
our systems. With Nagios, you could use passive checks. This is where the
programs that monitor your server run locally on the server and submit
results to the central monitoring server. The central Nagios server can
alert based on the results it receives or based on the fact that it hasn't
received results for a period of time.
