I fully agree in regards to your suggestion of "a more general solution" 
to display test-results.

And yes I've seen the preperations/availability of those "other 
tetst-types in caretaker" (and even glanced at their code a bit), 
however until so far I've not discovered how those testresults are being 
  stored / displayed / communicated in BE or FE.
I thought the creators of the the SNMP- and RSML-Services, have already 
had a concept for storage & display of the test-results. Am I wrong?

How about the following, as a procedural approach:

1.) As a first step, lets just take care (sic! ;-) that the details of 
the test-results dont get lost:
That is to store the COMPLETE, gathered test-result information of all 
LATEST test-results) in an additional table or within some new rows of 
tx_caretaker_lasttestresult (or in some files)

2.) Let anybody come up with ideas on howto visualize those 

So what do you think about this procedere ?

Thanks upfront, regards Georg

PS: Given 1.) my fast solution would be to sketch up a new JasperReport 
"T3-Instance-EXT-Stats" (or thelike), which would query the DB and 
display the desired results in some meaningful fashion, without 
interation into the T3-Caretaker-Backend.
