I got carried away as I was writing the email and added this without
No only that, but if one process goes down I will get 99,999 messages.
I think I need to come up with a partitioning scheme or a hierarchy of
processes which have a single notifier watching them so that only one
'DOWN' message is signalled and then I can cascade it as needed.
So, I'm back to my original question of how many monitors can a single
process hold. I'll post the results of any benchmarking I do.
