Host Dependancy would probably be a good thing for VServer. All your
guest checks should probably be dependant on the host. After all, if
the host goes down getting alarms per guest is redundant. Following
that logic you can make your vserver-host dependent on your switch. I
admit to not using it in every case I could but in a large even like a
failure of a switch your email box can be overloaded with cascading
