take a look at mon.  it's a framework for monitoring systems and sending
alerts via email, sms, or whatever.

it comes with many scripts to test availability of common services (like
smtp, ftp, http, etc), and can test pretty much anything as long as you 
can write a script to do the test.

Description: monitor hosts/services/whatever and alert about problems
 "mon" is a tool for monitoring the availability of services.  Services
 may be network-related, environmental conditions, or anything that can
 be tested with software.  If a service is unavailable mon can tell you
 with syslog, email, your pager or a script of your choice.  You can
 control who gets each alert based on the time of day or day of week,
 and you can control how often an existing problem is re-alerted.
 More information can be found at http://www.kernel.org/software/mon/.
