    Warning!!!!!! Warning!!!!! Your server is down.

    How would you like your notification, carrier pigeon?

    Please give a bit more meat to your request.

    Have you looked for any solutions yet yourself? what have you discovered?

    Have you looked at the Open Managment from DELL and HP? this may give you the options you require. just not sure what would happen if you Mail Server went down.

    So, you may have to look at other options such as

    Simple Server Monitor - Server Monitoring Software

    or

    Nagios would be my choice. You can set it up to notify you via email, jabber, sms or any other method (so long as you have some form of script telling it what to do on the nagios server).

    Your could try for something free is downloading Zag's server monitor and then customizing the down part into sending you an email. but you would need to learn a bit of PHP for that

    The easiest thing would be to create an email distrbution group and add the users that you need to be notified to that group.

    Within OP SmartMonitor simply add the email address of the group and they will get the email.

    It would be pretty easy to add a "send email if server was down" option to my PHP app.

    I'm guessing then someone could schedule a task in windows to load the page every 30mins.

    I have it running on an Xibo screen in my office on a rolling thing between that and a few other stuff - so have it refreshed every min.

    I was going to edit it for the email part but havn't quite got round to it yet.

    We use Zoho's (formerly AdventNet) ManageEngine OpManager to monitor our servers. You can use it for free for up to 10 devices (e.g. servers, switches, routers, etc.). It's easy to setup. Can run on Linux and on Windows servers (for WMI communication).

    We just installed Eagleye from a local company - so far very good, it emails us, Txts us, we can see even if a service is down. spoke to a guy called Sam if there was a way to monitor toners etc with spending 1000's, has any one else used somthing like this? They say it monitors the whole server and all updates services, patches etc..

    Hi there, yes Eagleye 24/7 is a network monitoring tool that will monitor pretty much everything, back up, harddrives, antivirus, email etc you can even set thresholds so that it will let you know about toner levels, it can also monitor humidity and power. Eagleye 24/7 monitors all critical services on the network and server. If you are interested I can let you know where to get it from

    We have it built into papercut that monitors the toner on the printer along with the users printing
