Monitoring critical processes - FreeBSD

Is there a utility (perhaps in ports) that can 1) monitor critical processes and detect when they've stopped and 2) send an email alert (or even pager) and 3) restart the process if it's failed. I've been using shell scripts for this, but ISTM that somebody might have actually written a nice little program that does it.

    Paul,
    Nagios might meet your monitoring requirements?

    Thanks, Nick. I knew of nagios, but I was not aware that it was capable of
    restarting stopped services.

    Nagios is able to restart stopped services. I currently use it to
    monitor my network. You can create plugins for Nagios that will run
    after a certain set of conditions have been met. I'm not sure if this
    is completely doented but you may want to search the nagios list
    archives.
