I will add more to the documentation also... Nocol sends out alerts when a
device goes *into* a particular severity and also when it *leaves* that

So 'noclogd' will automatically get a notification when a device enters
and leaves any of the severity levels (info, warning, etc.)

It is not easy to do 'dependencies' at this time. The infrastructure does
exist, but the external script is not available yet. i.e. you would run a
script from noclogd which would process the dependencies also.

Once the 'database' integration is done, this will be much easier to query
the state of various devices.
