[rabbitmq-discuss] rabbitmqctl diag command?

When you are running rabbitmq broker, what do you use to check its status and to make sure
it's still operational?
I could open a test connection every 5 minutes or so, send and consume a message; if
either fails, send an alarm. Does anybody else have other ideas?
I was also thinking that it would be nice to possibly extend rabbitmqctl command line tool
to offer diag output (as a separate command under rabbitmqctl - like "rabbitmqctl diag").
If this output is easily parsed from shell, writing tests and alarms would be trivial.
Something like "keyword: value" for things like mnesia database status, listener status,
current # of open connections, # of messages published, etc. The more data points, the
better. One could build charts off of that data too...
