Setting up a watchdog for the Bamboo server

What is the easiest way to set up a watchdog that will alert administrators if our Bamboo server is inaccessible?

There are lots of general monitoring solutions out there, but, we did a simple, poor man's implementation to monitor all of our atlassian products. We have 2 servers that run all of our Atlassian applications and each has its own database and Bamboo server. Each Bamboo server continuously runs a groovy script. The script runs a product specific CLI command (Atlassian Command Line Interface) against each product hosted on the other server. Response time needs to be within a tolerance level. Multiple failures in a row for a specific product will cause an email alert. For Bamboo, we use getProjectList action. We let Bamboo automatically keep the monitors running continuously except during our backup window. For example, a scheduled Bamboo backup will not allow any activity until the backup completes.
