We currently have 5 computers, a mix of windows 2000 advanced server and 2 winxp pro machines that I have to keep online all the time.  However, occasionaly one of them crashes or freezes overnite or over the weekend and we do not find out about it until either someone tries to do something or when we arrive in the morning.  Is there a program that will monitor our servers and the 2 xp workstations that can notify me, by either email or page that one of the machines is having an issue?

I use Servers Alive...it has tons of various alert methods, and can monitor the server itself or a specific service.

to make it even better, its free for under 10 servers...

try this www.gfi.com/nsm

I think it's a very good product for the money.  If you decide that you don't want to buy it, once the trial period has expired, the icmp checks still function.

You need a suitable modem in the back to send SMS alerts, etc... Wavecom produce a suitable device.
