I'm still learning Avalon, so please excuse me if I ask strange questions:

Will this Monitoring Framework allow any resource to be watched? Let me 
explain; I want to be able to 'ping' a web server using http, can I 
write a 'module' that plugs into this framework? Of course, the details 
of which webserver to ping, which port, how often, etc would be in some 
config file (which may or may not be able to be changed after startup). 
Then, I can take an appropriate action if a ping fails some criteria. 
The idea is to abstract the implementation, configuration, and action of 
this monitoring framework so I can write generic modules to watch things 
like system resources, network resources, etc.
