an approach might be:

- write a custom test and deploy on a host in locationA
- The script should poll their public IP (eg, by fetching
icanhazip.com) and save it on a file
- Compare their current IP with a previous run
- if IPs differ, report locationA,example,com.IPChange as yellow and
report old and new IPs
- if IPs equal, report green
