software watchdog for system & software (fedora)

I'm looking for a piece of software that may have already been written, before I have to go and write it myself. This watchdog software will monitor the system (fedora) and take actions on certain conditions (disk full, temperature too high). It will also monitor and take action if certain processes crash/ stop/ loop. I can write something myself but something already written would be much more comprehensive.

Sounds like you are looking for Nagios. It is system monitoring and will e-mail you on alerts warnings and you can have it run a proccess for a given warning etc.

Has a bunch of plugins from the community so you should find what you need.... or you could write you own!!
