    Can some assist me in creating a script that does this. Monitor Eth0 & Eth1 and httpd service. If interface Etho or Eth1 doesn't respond to pings for 5 minutes, the server should do a shutdown. Also if the httpd service isnt running or stopped for any reason shut the machine off. So basically any of these conditions will initiate a poweroff. Thanks

    This is what ive done so far . Im still missing the ping section. Is what i'm doing correct?


    Inter0=`/sbin/ifconfig | grep eth0 | awk '{print $1}'`
    Inter1=`/sbin/ifconfig | grep eth1 | awk '{print $1}'`

    if ps ax | grep -v grep | grep $SERVICE > /dev/null


    echo "$SERVICE service running"


    sleep 30s
    shutdown -h now


    if [ -z $inter0]; then
    sleep 30s
    shutdown -h now


    if [ -z $Inter1]; then

    sleep 30s
    shutdown -h now
