UGE is used in over thousands of nodes, health checks are done via load
sensors, a SGE/UGE feature. however i am not aware of any public repo for
shared health checks. as for overheat, in one cluster it was done at the
bios/firmware level by asking the vendor for certain thresholds to shut the
machine off. and it is logged in the syslog logs
