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

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

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

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