Is there a way to monitor an open port to see if a device goes offline

I have about 150 Aruba 93 Access Points each in a different location.  I know there is some Aruba Central software but it is pretty expensive.  I have the https port 4343 open from a single ip open so I can configure remotely.  Is there a way to monitor that open port or another to see if any of them stop responding and then alert me?  Or do you know another way to just see if a device is not online?

Thx

TJ

You could use anything such as Splunk, Nagios, Cacti, SolarWinds, etc. to monitor the URL and if goes down, it will alert you.
