I have installed munin on one of my servers, and munin-node on another server I wish to monitor. I would like an alert if for any reason the node can't be contacted by the master. Is it possible to configure munin to do something like that, either the way I have stated above, or through plugins?

Or is munin really not designed to do this at all?

Apparently Munin is not designed to do this at all. It may, however, be possible by patching the Munin source code. (Source: http://grokbase.com/t/sf/munin-users/092qk1vxpk/how-to-trigger-a-notification-when-a-node-cant-be-contacted)
