This could be an interesting application of ant. ant, the network monitoring
tool... Anybody written an snmp or even a ping task?
:)

What do you need to check?  If the machine is uptodate with a set of files?
Is an application deployed?

One solution is to use xmlproperty and foreach from
ant-contrib.
http://ant-contrib.sourceforge.net/ant-contrib/manual

<project default="x">
  <property name="machine.file" value="input.xml"/>
  <target name="x">
    <taskdef resource="net/sf/antcontrib/antcontrib.properties" />
    <xmlproperty file="${machine.file}"/>
    <echo message="${pnc.build.config.deploymachines}"/>
    <foreach param="machine" target="template-deploy-machine"
             list="${pnc.build.config.deploymachines}"
             inheritall="yes" inheritRefs="yes"/>
  </target>

  <target name="template-deploy-machine">
    <echo>Check Deploy on machine ${machine}</echo>
  </target>
</project>

Then use 'ant -Dmachine.file="test.xml" '
or 'ant' to use the  default file "input.xml"
