	In my book, test of a networked service that takes 30 seconds
to complete is the same thing as failed service ;-).

	Two things here :-). There is no documentation on how to actually
use SNMP in Sysmon :-).

	Second - yes, you can check the temp itself, but can you check
whether it has risen for 5 degrees in past 30 minutes (trend to rise)? Or if
badwidth usage has started going up, etc.

	As I mentioned -  I understand this, but I'm looking at this not
programmer, but user's eyes :-)

	Actually, that's the way I'd like to see it, too :-)
