I've been working on a webbased vserver administration application
and I've been thinking about a way to run certain tasks on the host
machine. The tasks involve: stopping/starting the vserver, deploying
(in my case using rsync) new vservers and configs.

I started on an implementation with a php based daemon, but that
would mean I'd have to handle authentication, implement a protocol,
calling various sub-applications from the daemon, etc.
This gave me a lot of headaches :)

At the moment I am monitoring our vserver installations using SNMP
and started thinking of the idea of using the SNMP daemon I have
already running as a full management daemon. This would simplify a
lot from my end, but the end user (people running vserver
environments) would have to install snmp on their servers, which, I
can imagine, causes security risks not everyone is willing to take.

To make a long story short, I am wondering if someone else
considers using SNMP is a worthwile approach, or perhaps people
have different ideas ?
