Advanced Host Monitor is a network monitor program that can create a list of jobs and tests in advance on a set and forget basis.
Among the many checks it can do, it can monitor any TCP service, ping a host, retrieve an URL, check the available disk space, check the integrity of your files and website, test your SQL servers, NT services, and much more.
It checks network servers at regular intervals and takes pre-defined actions if a device does not respond. It can provide a visual and sound warning, send an e-mail message to a mailbox, pager, or mobile phone, execute external programs, restart NT services, reboot local or remote computers, etc.
Advanced Host Monitor can generate test result log files or reports and includes a Log Analyzer, illustrating separate statistical information and showing graphs for each tested host.
