Feature: Port monitorurl from 2.X

Status: not started
More: Imported from Bug 2185
The monitorurl feature is very handy for reverse proxies acting as load balancers in front of farms to detect origin server failures. It's available in 2.X but not yet in 3.X.
Furthermore, a dampening function should be implemented, to specify the check interval, the number of failed probes before the peer is considered down, and the number of successful probes before it's considered back up.
