Test service of single machine in cluster

I'm curious if there is a way to test that a service is properly responding to requests on a single machine in a cluster?


We currently run ArcGIS 10.2.  We have 3 GIS servers in the default cluster, lets call them server 1, server 2, and server 3 for simplicity.  We have one server (server 4) that has the web adapter installed and handles all of the REST requests from our business system.


I have found instances where one of the servers would not be responding to requests.  If a request was sent to the web adapter server, the result could be good, or it could result in an error if the request was sent to the server that was not responding to requests.  Is there a way to send a request to one of the servers specifically to ensure it is responding?  My intentions are to develop some scripting tools to alert us when a service or server is not responding, allowing us to take the appropriate action.
