Re: Email and Text notification for server alerts
we generally use SMNP solutions to monitor machines.
the windows SNMP service is a reasonably good service and can access the extra MIBS provided by packages like open manage etc (or whatever the dell equiv is) to monitor hardware status as well.
there are quite a few free SNMP monitor tools out there, and some commercial ones too if you plan to have an actively monitoring/alerting machine.
IF you use IBM director, this tool can monitor SNMP things like process usage/disk usage etc and the basic version is available for free. and can be configured to email you.
to download this you need to go to the IBM website and search for it, you might need to open a free account to use it as well.
(even though it's IBM it works on non-IBM servers as well).
