Why not take this a step further and have another system try to diagnose the issue with the identified outlier server before handing it over to the alert system? Seems like you'd be generating a lot of alerts otherwise.

Our central alerting gateway (CAG) does much more than just send emails and pages. When the system was fist built we hooked into CAG directly as it is capable of taking many of the desired actions on its own.
