Monitoring PI Notifications health status?

To continue this thread with a different product in mind:


One of our clients had problems with AF today. It turned out that something had happened to the PIFD database (don't know what) and it was completely empty (no tables, stored procedures, etc) and as a result AF didn't work. Another result was that the notifications we had running didn't send me any emails today.


So - how could we monitor this case using PI Notifications? If PI Notifications is relying 100% on the AF database being up and running, wouldn't that mean that we're screwed?


Or would the PI Notifications scheduler be able to keep the notification logic in memory, and still be able to warn us that something is happening?
