E-mail alerts from a freaking server

By jshaw ·
Ok, here's the deal. I have a cell that will receieve e-mail messages via any e-mail program there is. Anyway, that said, I wanna know how I can make an NT 4 server send me an alert when A: a certain app craps out and B: if the server reboots itself. I would like advice on how to have alerts sent to me WITHOUT buying additional software, if possible. Otherwise, can you suggest a decent, preferable cheap program that can send e-mail alerts?

Thanks!
Jason

E-mail alerts from a freaking server

It will take a couple of pieces to put it together, but it's all open source GPL stuff so it meets your cost criteria.

I just set up a system to do this and I started at www.wcts.org/snmp4tpc with their SNMP Agents and added a program called Big Brother that adds the threshold and paging function. It took a couple of hours to install and debug but it works quite well.

For those fortunate enough to run Compaq servers, the Compaq management agents can page you via an e-mail to your pager and those are available for download from Compaq.

Hope that gives you some ideas to start with.

Here ya Go:

www.serversalive.com

Will monitor up to 10 services for FREE! If you need to monitor more than 10. You will have to buy something. ( Whats up Gold, etc..)

This will allow notifications to be sent out via email and or paging.
Hope this helps.

Good Luck!
