Monitoring the On Premise Gateway

Does anyone have a clever idea for monitoring the health of the the Gateway service? We are using the On Premise Gateway to connect with SSAS. All good on that front. We have had occations where the Gateway becomes unresponsive and our production system is effectively down. This was an issue two weeks ago and while I'm not sure of the root cause, the problem was fixed by installing the latest version of the gateway.

 

We'd like to have a notification of some sort if the gateway is not available. Or production environment depends on the gateway and currently it is exposes a single point of failure for the system.  I have read that the there are plans in the works for adding high-availablity features to the service but we don't know when.

 

I have thought of building a utility that would monitor the Gateway log file, but that may not be that easy. I have noticed that the gateway will continue to log, even when is is not responsive. So such a utility would need to parse the log entries, which are rather criptic.

 

It would be great to have some sort of a ping service for the gateway. If anyone has other ideas for a solution, all input is welcome.
