Might it be a good idea to simply broadcast its status, period, similar to
ganglia's gmond? Each pbs_server knows which nodes it cares about; it can
filter status packets accordingly. I have a suspicion that this might scale
better (multicasting even better, but that's a whole other ballgame that I
have _no_ experience in).
