Monitoring the Server

When launched via

  web-server-monitor [-p <port>]
                     [-f <frequency>]
                     [-t <timeout>]
                     <alert-email> <host-name>

the web-server-monitor polls any Web server running on host host-name at port port (or port 80) every frequency seconds (or 1 hour). If the server does not respond to a HEAD HTTP request for the homepage within timeout (or 75) seconds or sends an error response, the monitor will notify alert-email of the problem.
