If using Windows, you need to use the activeperl 'ppm install GD' command to get the package. I don't know if they havemade it available for 5.8 yet, but it works in 5.6.
Under UNIX, you need to first install the gd C libraries (version 2 or later!). Under linux, you may have 1.8 installed alerady, so get 2.0 or later from http://www.boutell.com. Then get GD.pm from http://www.cpan.org, and install this as per instructions -- 'perl Makefile.PL' followed by 'make install'

This would require a fairly large extension to the script.
Currently, it only does a ping to the specified address, and then returns up or down. To monitor services, it would need to know IP address and service port number, and would have to be configured to recognise certain services so that it could do a friendly no-op or whatever (else you end up with a lot of errors logged by the remote server). eg, with mysql, it could connect to the database and the disconnect immediately. HTTP could just get the /index.html page, SMTP does a NOOP and QUIT, and so on.
I can see the value of something like this, however, maybe if you have a lot of services to monitor, it would be better to look at a (free) product such as Nagios or Big Brother (I prefer Nagios).
