Domino Domain Monitoring is a Great tool that was introduced in Release 7.x
It can monitor ACL changes, if all servers are reachable, and a lot of other stuff. Please find more information here. IBM RedPaper

One of my clients scheduled some Traveler/HTTP restarts during the night, to free some memory and we wanted to be sure all tasks are back in business.
I decided to use DDM to monitor Traveler State, but all of a sudden, I found that DDM is able to monitor WEB Retriever, which was popular in 4.x version of Notes, but not now.
Anyway IBM please update list of tasks with Traveler please. In meanwhile You can open DDM database, REMOVE inheritance of template or make changes in template ddm.ntf.

Open Event Generator\Task Status and in Task name field add new keyword. Tadam! :) Save your work and create Traveler Status monitor. If task is Down notify yourself my mail, or schedule command to start it back.
