You will probably consider this to be anything other than help, but I can't see why this is a good idea. There are a number of programs that do exactly this kind of thing (nagios, munin/monit even ksysguard).
Maybe here aren't many that do everything.

Wouldn't the whole world be a better place if you wrote useful 'plug-ins' for existing systems? If so, maybe you would like to look at what exists?
