That's fine, but I'm curious. How do you expect to run a cluster
information tool over a network without a socket at both ends? If not
xmlsysd, then something else -- sshd, xinetd, dedicated or general
purpose, where the latter almost certainly will have have higher
overhead? Or are you looking for something with a kernel level network
interface, more like scyld?
