 SystemEDGE, an SNMP systems and application management agent from
 Empire Technologies, does this.

 live example:

 The example shows SystemEDGE being used to autonomously monitor
 service response time and application availability for services
 such as DNS, Web Service, FTP, NNTP, POP, and SMTP.

 SystemEDGE is actually doing a null transaction to the remote
 server so you see the actual response that an end-user would.

 The information is available as a MIB variable that you can poll
 from your management station, or better yet, use the agent's
 threshold monitoring to monitor the response time and send up
 a trap if it exceeds some threshold.

 As a pure-SNMP agent, SystemEDGE interoperates with any SNMP-complient
 management station like NetView. TAVVE provides NetView "snap-in"
 reports for SystemEDGE.

 If you want to give SystemEDGE a whirl, you can get a free eval
