Skip adding a layer if the Map Service is down?

I've got a web map that consumes a number of map services.  Most are hosted on our internal server, but a couple are hosted externally.  One particular service tends to go down somewhat regularly, and when this happens the map itself breaks (not entirely, but it loses enough functionality to be a problem).


Outside of manually checking the web map every morning, I have absolutely no idea how to deal with this.  What usually happens is the service goes down in the middle of the day, we have a complaint from a customer, and I have to manually update the code to skip adding that service to the map until I get word that the service is back up.  Is there a better way of handling this?  Some way to use JS to check to see if the service is up and running before attempting to add the service?


Thanks in advance!
