A way to spot check monitor functionality each morning?

Question

A way to spot check monitor functionality each morning? We are trying to come up with ideas to do this, because one morning we found a production cluster not monitoring, and we were not alerted about it. I am familiar with "alert if no data received" for any particular datasource, but is there a way to do a more broad check automatically?

We have many SNMP DataSources.  For us, we do not alert on "no data" except for one purpose-built dataPoint we call SNMPHealthCheck which *does* alert if no data.  That way, it can signal to us that SNMP may be in trouble vs. the monitored resource.
