Feature Idea: Synthetic Probes for Network Ports instead of URLs

I am exploring Synthetics features… About Monitoring Script/API, is there any method/script to Monitor Hostnames such as SSH Port instead of URLs ?
Idea would used Synthetics to Monitor our Servers probing key Operation Systems Ports such as ssh (22) port ( for Unix ) to get SLA Reports. Or something similar.
Would be very interesting see kind of SLA Report about Key OS Ports Availability/Failures/Etc.

New Relic Edit
