You'll find that the current version most likely will not run nicely on Linux. The reason this is so is that the code I've written uses Windows process management specifically to launch the monitoring daemon.
If you fancy yourself a Python junkie, however, it wouldn't be hard to replace my rather jumbled process management code with a simple os.fork(). If you do happen to work on something like this, let me know - I'd definitely be interested! If not, I may perhaps do it myself, if I can find the time
