IMO, JMeter is a load testing framework, not a monitoring system - its
primary function is to create load and provide reports on the injected load
- you may find more useful features by considering a system designed to
monitor to trigger alerts, and let JMeter do the load injection. Nagios,
Zabbix and Zenoss are a few. We use Zabbix here, and make use of Zabcat for
push alerts into the monitoring system.
