Everyone elas has answered your question but I just wanted to point
out that this is very much *NOT* a mis-use of Jabber.  Jabber is not
just IM by any means.  Read JDEV, and S-JIG, you'll see all sorts of
non-IM use cases tossed around.  Chess and Whiteboarding are some
current topics on S-JIG for example.

XMPP would serve very well as a messaging backbone for all of Nagios
for that matter.
