    i thought people might be interested in this
    of course, I am building my performance monitoring tools
    some of you know i what think of the current products

    PolyMon is an open source system monitoring solution that can be used to generate email alerts and analyze historical trends of monitor counters and monitor statuses

    It is made up of three primary components:

    A SQL Server database to store monitor statuses, alerts and general settings. Email notifications are handled by a stored procedure in the database itself.
    A windows service (PolyMon Executive) that runs monitors on a periodic basis and logs results to the database
    A management/monitoring front-end (PolyMon Manager) that is used to manage general settings, monitor definitions, operators, alert rules, etc. and analyze historical trends (both monitor counters and statuses).

    Currently included monitors are:

    Performance Monitor
    File (Age and Counts)
    Windows Service
    SQL Monitor (Can run any stored procedure that returns resultsets in a specific format)
    TCP Port Monitor

    How the email notifications are handled, is it by SMTP?
