Performance Monitoring Utility

Hello,

Does anyone know of a freeware or open source (or cheap) dektop performance monitor for windows Server 2003 that monitors temperature, system performance, network performance, etc. Perhaps E-mail notification in case of urgency? Only requirement is tested compatibility with Server 2003.

Thanks!

Hi,

Sorry I forgot to mention, the kind of utility I was looking for would reside on the desktop. Do any of yours fit this?

Thanks!

the process explorer is purely for the server

performance monitor runs on the server but can be accessed from a client machine
