    G/Day forum,

    I've got a number of business critical web services running on multiple W2K3
    IIS 6.0 servers, and am looking for a software that monitors the status of
    this web service. Can anyone recommend a Web Service monitoring software
    that I could use? I need something that can execute a Java Script/VB
    Script/Batch file/EXE from a dedicated Monitoring Station (Out of Band)-
    that will initiate a request to my web service, passing through valid
    parameters, that test all the supporting services on my App servers, DB
    Servers, etc. I also need this software to be able to comprehend the result,
    and alert if necessary through SMS, Email, etc.

    Regards,
    Steve.

    Here you have a link to the site of netcrunch
    (http://www.adremsoft.com/netcrunch/index.php). It's a network monitoring
    tool that might be helpfull. It can moniotor nodes, detect events that
    indicate faults, notify users of problems (mail,sms,...) and activate
    alerting actions.

  3. Try Healthmonitor, it's Opensource and fully customizable; allow sql
    logging, text file logging, and many notification methods (e-mail, sms,
    net send..)
    Check it out on http://healthmonitor.sourceforge.net

    Good question. You may also want to think about load balancing across a
    cluster of web service hosts and using something like an Alteon content
    switch to check if the instances are alive. Works a treat!
