Maybe the strategy below isn't the best, but I want to monitor my girder PC if it's alive.
What I did is send every 15 minutes a "heartbeat" event to another girder PC. The last PC has a schedule "watchdog" running which fires every 60 minutes. When this schedule fires it should send me an email with a notify my main girder PC has stopped working. The incoming heartbeat event stops and starts the watchdog schedule. The idea is it would reset the the schedule and as long as heartbeats are received the email action is never triggered from the watchdog schedule
My problem is when I look in the event list the time of the watchdog schedule remains the same. Is it possible to reset a schedule?

Problem solved. I didn't notice the simpletimer plugin which does the job.
