     3 * Ease of administration. 
     4  * Adding, altering and removing monitors for large sets of machines should be trivial. 
     5  * Simple to ascertain what is monitored and whether or not the monitoring system itself is meeting its contracts. 
     6  * Small, tight and deployable on any unix variant. 
     7  * All reconfiguration can be performed in-flight.

     11    * HTTP request several URLs checking for content and/or HTTP code over thousands of machines. 
     12 * Delegated deployment. 
     13  * centralized configuration management. 
     14  * decentralized configuration manipulation.
