Improve HW failover to monitor connectivity and services
Currently hardware fail-over requires a full failure of the primary system and to become unavailable on the heartbeat interface for it to switch over to the slave. This can mean a system with a failed filtering service or network interface will be left running instead of switching to the fail-over system.
Ideally the fail-over system could be expanded to include monitoring enabled critical services for failure (Eg Guardian, VPN etc) and also network interfaces for loss of connectivity.

Absolutely awesome idea! Would be a solid improvement.
