crm_mon is in C and I did not unterstand it.

I am not a hardcore programmer, and I did my last C program 20 years ago. Only 
some scripting afterwards. And coding the agent in perl was quite simple. At 
least the things that I want to know from a cluster. Perhaps C is as easy, but 
I jumped to the perl version for a easy win.

BUT: If you help me, we can extend the crm_mon together.
