Battle Server - Auto Restart

Hi Guys,

As you may/may not know I have been working on auto-restart script tied into my monitoring system.
I can safely say as of posting this that it is working and no longer restarts the server twice in a row :)

Technical Info:
My Nagios system checks the server(Checks Primary port & other checks) every 1-3mins to see if it is live, if change of state (Critical / Warning / Okay)
If there is a change of state it runs a script which checks a file for a timestamp to see if it has run in the last 5 minutes, if it hasn't it "restarts" the server and updates the timestamp file.

Which means, if the server comes up, and you crash it within 5 minutes then it "may" not come backup again automatically.

I don't really want to reduce this in case of false alerts etc, however please feel free to comment / post thoughts.

*Update*
It was discovered the server was somewhat unable to change maps, this has now been resolved which makes it possible to remove the 5minute window, however planning to leave it for a week as is to see how stable it is..

    Neat, should help out a bit.

    Also, finally fixed your rank, thought Amaroq might have before but I guess not.
