So, if you remember my previous message, I was using keepalived in a
localnode configuration, which almost worked, but not quite. It may be
doable, but it was taking up too much time to do something I had already
done with heartbeat/ldirectord before, and done well. So I switched, and
in short order had a working localnode setup. Preface done, here's my

Healthchecking ssh with ldirectord. Right now I have a port connection
test going, which works, but it's not as thorough as I would like as it
doesn't really test to make sure that ssh is responding, just that the
port is up. Is there a health checker for ssh that will work with
ldirectord? I haven't found one, and it doesn't seem to do it itself, at
least based on the docs. 

Also, the current 'check the port' checker spams the hell out of my logs
with "Did not receive identification string" messages. Now, I know
exactly why it's logging this, but it would be nice if I could turn off
that warning for this host. Any ideas?
