    Hi Daley, check out these probes:

     

    net_connect - The Network Connectivity Monitoring (net_connect) probe monitors the following parameters of remote hosts:

    • Host connectivity using ping (ICMP ECHO) commands
    • Packet loss, jitter, and latency for the connection to the hosts
    • TCP connections to a list of user-defined services

     

    ntservices - The ntservices probe monitors the list of NT services installed on the Windows system where the probe is deployed. The probe uses Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) to detect which services are running. The service state is compared with the defined desired state for each service on this system. If the actual state differs from the expected state, the probe can either do one or both of the following options:

    • Report the mismatch in an alarm message
    • Try to force the service into the desired state

    Some examples of the NT services are: ActiveX Installer, Application Information, Bluetooth Support Service, Computer Browser, and Credential Manager.

     

    Hope that helps!

    Daley,

     

    What about the processes probe?

     

    The (Process Monitoring) processes probe monitors the specified processes to detect any error situation. The probe also retrieves information about the process, for example, the CPU usage, memory usage, and so on. The following conditions are verified by the probe:

    • A process is expected to run, but has stopped.
    • A process is not expected to run, but is running.
    • A process does not run as expected.
    • The number of process instances is not as expected.
    • The CPU usage for a process is above specified threshold.
    • The handle counts for a process are above specified threshold (Windows only).
    • The memory usage for a process is above specified threshold.
    • The thread usage for a process is above specified threshold.

    Alarms and QoS messages can be generated when specified threshold is breached.

    Thanks

    again

    I just need a message to say that  a task has started  and the time

    Also can the NT event service monitor transaction logs for logs disk utilisation of SQL server and certificate that has expired

    Daley, it seems that you have a lot of 'which probe should I use' type of questions. Please read through this page HERE and get a brief rundown on each probe.

    Be sure to check out individual probes on the left side of the page as well, to see what specific metrics each probe offers.

    thanks your info was useful but there is something particular like certificate expired ,sql transaction and also dns resolv are not specifically mentioned in such probes
