The only mailscanner variables we monitor is the presence of the mailscanner
process and ascoiated processes. And the avg. batch scan speeds.

What exactly do you want to monitor?  There are already plugins to check 
status of processes, and MailScanner itself doesn't have queues: the 
queues are for the MTA, and there are plugins to check them too.  What 
MailScanner-specific items do you want to monitor that are not covered by 
the present Nagios plugins?
