Simple network service avaibility monitor

'netalert' checks the availability of network services by initiating cyclic TCP and/or UDP connection attempts. It can also validate received sequences (using extended regular expressions) and even trigger those sequences by sending sequences itself. It will notify the admin by email when a service goes down. The package is easy to setup due to its clean XML-based configuration file.
