Is there any reliable and configurable utility for linux severs that sends email notifications when no specified/configured/scripted activity is detected for a given period of time?

I'm not looking for the way to monitor the process itself, as the process might be working all the time (i.e. it's PID is on the list of active processes) but the inner-processing might get stuck somewhere...

By activity checking, I mean checking the file/http address provided by the monitored system, under which the date of last finished inner-processing task is available

it all depends what you call as "activity". is it creation or modifications to a file ? Or is it a web page being hit by a certain IP address ? Or is it a certain user logging in at a certain time ? Your question is too vague and you will most probably get flagged unless you provide more information. – MelBurslan Apr 10 '13 at 21:32
Thank you @Mel_Burslan. I've provided more details – migajek Apr 10 '13 at 22:07
