Angel is a simple yet useful tool to monitor the services on your network. Technically speaking, it's a Perl program that runs every 'n' minutes (usually fired from your cron) and calls different perl subprograms (referred to as "plugins" from now on) to do the actual testing. It will then generate an HTML table containing the status of your network.
