Quick and dirty http server connection status checker

Nodes in some load balanced web servers were taking turns going down. They were taking too long to respond to TCP connections.

I didn't have any graphing or monitoring. I wrote something quickly to tell me when a server was taking too long to respond. Then I could login and debug.

This program prints a warning when the connection does not complete in 1 second. I also added a signal handler to dump a summary of the connection statistics.

Update: The code is on github.

Sample output:
$ ./sas-monitoring ./sas-monitoring is starting as pid 27925. From another window you ma +y run: kill -USR1 27925 ...................................................................... +..................................................................... +......Could not create socket to 10.3.7.107 : Connection timed out -- 8< -- output removed here -- 8< -- 10.3.7.62: failures: 103 successes: 1092 10.3.7.109: failures: 79 successes: 1116 10.3.7.78: failures: 78 successes: 1117 10.3.7.105: failures: 29 successes: 1166 10.3.7.108: failures: 28 successes: 1167 10.3.7.106: failures: 6 successes: 1189 10.3.7.79: failures: 3 successes: 1192 10.3.7.63: failures: 2 successes: 1193 10.3.7.60: failures: 1 successes: 1194 10.3.7.107: failures: 1 successes: 1194 10.3.7.61: failures: 0 successes: 1195
The code:
