I have the cluster, cluster-zone, and icinga checks running, yes, but
they are not linked to the "is this host alive" check.

The SSH check was just an example. While there are many checks that it
makes sense to run on the satellite directly (like, say, is nginx
running), it makes more sense to run the network related checks (like,
port 443 is listening, it has a non expired certificate, and the vhost
https:://www.example.org works) some place else, on the master, for example.
