CVS is a complex application where 'going down' means many things and
you will require many tests to capture all those meanings.

So you need much more well defined requirements, and then the
requirements will define the tests for you, eg:

- repository file system full/read-only
- repository administration directory corrupt
- repository project directory/files missing or corrupt
- CVS configuration files missing/corrupt (depends on version of CVS 1.x
or 2.x)
- deadlock server down/port 2402 (local)
- server down/port 2401
- replication server down/port 2403
- server unable to instantiate 'cvs server' processes
- ssh server down
- ssh server unable to instantiate 'cvs server' processes
- the 'cvs server' processes unable to authenticate user (pam/local)
- the 'cvs server' process unable to read repository administration
- the 'cvs server' process unable to read repository project files
- the 'cvs server' process unable to write repository project files

If you are insterested in this level of detail in monitoring then you
are probably also interested in things like failsafe audit and access
control lists etc as well as vendor support for CVS.  If so please check
out CVS Suite.
