This (below) seems like it would be useful for biocatalogue.

Of course, a question brought up directly was "Any plans to publish
this information itself as Semantic Web Linked Data?" (Bob Ferris)

Would be nice.. That would enable software agents to make decisions
about which endpoints to use without leaving the comfort of SPARQL.

Hello all,
you have already encountered problems of SPARQL endpoint accessibility ?
you feel frustrated they are never available when you need them?
you develop an application using these services but wonder if it is reliable?
Here is a tool [1] that allows you to know public SPARQL endpoints
availability and monitor them in the last hours/days.
Stay informed of a particular (or all) endpoint status changes through
RSS feeds.
All availability information generated by this tool is accessible
through a SPARQL endpoint.
This tool fetches public SPARQL endpoints from CKAN  open data. From
this list, it runs tests every hour for availability.
