(How) can I script a check of syndication results for Portal 6.1

Every day our customer asks us to check if their syndicators updated succesfully. Part of this check we do is: we go in the console to the "web content syndicators" and click on it's link (under "latest update") to see the results (which usually states "update succeeded").

After that we check some xml stuff on the commandline on the server (IBM AIX 5.3)

My question is: can I find this info (for which now we check manually in the console) somewhere in a file too, OR can I somehow script portal via the commandline to hand over this info, so we can automate this check and have the customer sent the results automatically everyday?
