Alert if dispatch.fcgi fails

hey guys, my company had a meltdown today because the site was down. turns out dispatch.fcgi was erroring. does anyone have a handy solution that will notify me somehow if dispatch.fcgi errors in the future. some way to rescue in dispatch.fcgi with a call to sendmail maybe? exception notifier is a great plugin (highly recommended) and i'm looking for something that's useful even if the app can't get on it's feet.

any thoughts?

thanks, lawrence.

You could use Monit[1], God[2] or an external monitoring service such as Montastic[3].
