Check out monit in /usr/ports/sysutils/monit
It is a pretty handy tool for monitoring hosts and services, and you
can customize it to respond in a way you specify if the service is
unavailable (send email, page, sms, run custom program). I think it
should fit your needs nicely and is pretty easy to set up.
For example, it can monitor apache for a particular response and then
restart apache if necessary (which sounds pretty close to what you're
hope that helps.
