HP Sim seems to be reliable. It notifies us within 1 minute when a server goes offline or reboots.

Working on replacing sim with mom.

Any ideas? Looking to find an alert that will alert me when a server goes offline

thanks

I run Vista on my desktop and have a nice gadget on my sidebar that pings our internal servers every 60 seconds.  It is a great heads up when one of them goes offline.  The ping frequency is adjustable too.
