Automatic Cache Monitoring

I'm looking for suggestions on the subject of "testing" Squid for general
aliveness. I maintain several Squid boxes; I already use "echoping" from a
central location to check that the boxes are alive periodically. However
Squid occasionally fails but the machine continues to run; hence echoping
reports all is well but the service is no longer available.

Does anybody centrally monitor their Squid boxes for signs of life (or
signs of death)? Is there a product or hack out there that will enable me
to poke Squid and get an "I'm still here" response? Ideally I'd like to
approach this by just telnetting to a port and receiving a status report

Much thanks
