Project Description

Hello, i need a program to check let´s say if a ustream channel is streaming, and if it´s not send an email to warn me.
This is how i have it on my mind:

- Program receives X Kb/s from a specific url (input of the url must be variable and defined by me as needed)
- If less than X Kb/s for a few seconds are received program assumes stream is off
- Sends a warning email.

If possible, multiple intances of the program should run on the same machine, checking several urls.

You can use this url as a test: [url removed, login to view]
There are 3 streams inside that go down several times during a day, i should receive an email at joaquimandradedias(a)gmail(.)com in case one of them goes down

I think i expressed myself well, but if you have any questions just ask.
