in reply to Process Monitoring Script

Well, I'll preface this by saying I work for a company that sells stuff to do things like this on a grand scale. If you want to contact me privately regarding that after you see this suggestion, you may =] However, since your need seems to be small and since free is cheap, have you seen Big Brother? It does what you're asking and a whole bunch more and it's free. It's not fully functional as a full application or enterprise monitor, but it will solve your problem for sure.

good luck.

    I'll also put in in a good word for Big Brother. It's our primary monitor and is working well. You may also want to look at Spong which was inspired by BB but is written in perl.

    Once you start down this road you'll find lots more things that you want to monitor and I'd vote for an existing framework over re-inventing the wheel. Happy Monitoring!

    I'll second the Big Brother suggestion, and also toss in another for NetSaint. I've used both, and am leaning towards replacing an old BB instalation with NetSaint. YMMV.
