Creating a script to send email notifications for HP Openview Node outages

Hello, everyone...

I need a sample script for Unix, to send email notifications to administrators when a node event is down for more than 5 minutes on HP Openview.

I would like the administrator to  receive an email notiftication when HP Openview displays a  node down event, kick off a script that delays for 5 minuets then pings the node,  If the node is up then exit.  If the node is still down then do a sendmail to that user.  


 I would like this script to pass the name of the node to the script so that it knows what device to ping after the 5 minute delay.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't used Openview for many years, but I assume you can create a call to the script with the node as the first parameter (that's what $1 will be set to).
