In Asia-Pacific region, we're now using dbeacon:

There's a tarball link on that page as well as a link to the git  

Its different from the older multicast beacons in that its distributed  
in its action, rather than client/server; any client can also display  
the output matrix via a web server. For an example of output, see the
