First, we have a CL program (it started out simple, but evolved) that
checks the status of a number of our server jobs, and calls a modified
HTTPAPI example RPGLE program that verifies that our web servers are
actually serving pages, then emails out the results (thus checking the
internet connection status). It's set up on a self-perpetuating batch
job to run twice a day.
Second, when that proved to be inadequate to detect outages, we set up a
free account with Site24x7.com, to monitor the status of the most
important servers that are visible to the outside, and email us if there
are any outages.
