Time and knowledge. The ISP I do contract work for is moving its
hardware location and business office, and moving to a whole new IP
range. This under some sudden time constraints. :-(
    Throw in replacing WhatsUpGold with Nagios, upgrading the hardware
for the LV hosts, and a few other things I can't mention or remember and
  the time-thing gets to big.

Currently I'm just using check_ping on the hosts but was thinking there
might be a better check, especially for LV, and this is where the
knowledge-thing comes into play.

Cursed I am: living in interesting times! :-)
