The most efficient way to make sure a remote process is alive

I am looking for the absolute most efficient way to make sure a process, referenced by a pid I have, is alive. The process my pid references could of course be local or remote. There are lots of ways but I want the most efficient and I can't assume any application level code - this must be generic. Thoughts?

Cheers,
Martin
