Integrating Linode VPS Status into a desktop

If anyone knows how to monitor specific services as well that'd be awsome .
Other "wanted" functionality that i'd like is to check if a certain event occurs (like "WARNING POSSIBLE BREAK IN ATTEMPT" being printed in syslog / auth.log). If the event occurs having something "light up" or some kind of warning would be pretty awsome, but thats probably wishfull thinking.
Something like that would give you the monitoring part. I imagine there is something out there to make it easier but my initial thought would something like adobe air if you want the exact same on windows and linux. Have an air app that reads the status from the monitoring package.
