Seems like alot of typing for ps -ax ? Or am I missing the point?
The point is that this can test the status of a service on another machine. It is better than pinging, esp if ICMP is blocked by a firewall. Also, just becuase the machine is up, it does not mean a particular service on a particular port is working..
