Monitoring and Alerting When IPSEC Tunnel is Down or Fails

Before I embark on a long and possibly fruitless journey I figured it would be worth asking if anyone has already come up with a solution to the above question. We want to monitor the status of the IPSEC tunnels on our PFSense box and issue a alert if a tunnel goes down. I am wondering what options were available for that. I am hoping someone can just say "hey go use this method" and away we go. If not, then this will be an even more exciting journey into the unknown.

The general purpose network availability monitoring system you use to monitor servers, switches, routers, firewalls, etc. A ping to the remote end would suffice.
