You don't need a monitoring solution. Most NAS will fail over
quite happily once the server stops responding.

Check the return code of the failing module and use the
do_not_respond policy.

sql {
	fail = 1
if (fail) {

Do that for all modules critical to authentication.

It's very rare that responding with an Access-Reject on module
failure is an appropriate action. Unfortunately changing the
behaviour in the default config would be very disruptive.
