hmm. I guess you can keep the connection open forever. 
Didn't know you could do this. Thanks

yow. That's a lot of code.

The code I've got is feeding rrdtool. I looked at Nagios a 
while back (maybe 10yrs ago, or it seems that far back) and 
couldn't figure out how it worked.

Thanks to Reggie and John for your comments. I prefer just 
running the commands on the monitored machine and shipping 
the final results back to the monitor machine. Running 
everything through the keyhole of ssh from the monitoring 
machine has been hell, but I'm not the manager
