[fw-wiz] Yeah - new syslog server

You could set up a system like Nagios that would regularly ping a host
on the other end of the tunnel and keep track of up / down time.

	So, my company is getting nailed for not meeting its SLA
	for uptime. Because of this my manager has asked me for a way to

	monitor VPN uptimes (for one). Now, and if someone here knows 
	something different PLEASE tell, all of our site-to-site VPN
	are either a Cisco router (older 2600s I believe) or a PIX (515s
	think). I haven't found a way to monitor the tunnels on those
	because there isn't a "interface-like" OID. The system I use to 
	monitor everything else can gather data from SNMP polls or
scripts and 
	a host of other things - but I haven't found anything for these 
	tunnels on these devices. 
	After explaining that to my boss I stated that I'm pretty sure I
	monitor *downtime* with a syslog server. He said good, spec one
	we'll get it ordered. We've placed an order for an IBM 510 with
	usable 1.2TB RAID array. This SHOULD be plenty for doing this,
	complying with any future requirements we might have (DITSCAP,
	one) allowing 11 months of archived data, 1 month of live data
	raw) and the various "break-out" log files. 
	I've got a few scripts from others on this list that I'll be
using for 
	everything - just wondering if anyone here has experience with
	tunnel monitoring part?
