personally this feature would make no difference to me, in our setup we 
use check_procs to ensure that service x is running, we hardly use any 
of the other metrics. we have load and swap checks for CPU/memory abuse, 
and we usually log onto the machine at the time of an alert to see what 
the offender is and deal with it as needed.
it is an interesting feature though.
