Determining if process is alive on a different node

I have a setup with multiple game servers. If a game server dies
players should be able to reconnect to a different game server. All
game servers share a database.
Even if I monitor every process on every node all nodes could
potentially crash and I'll still need to verify the processes when I
restart the cluster.
If Klacke is right about Erlang tracking node incarnations then I do
not have a problem and can just rpc:call(... is_process_alive ).
