.NET - SQL Process Monitor

I need to write an application that will monitor sql server processes.  If there is an issue I need to generate an e-mail.  The e-mail portion of the code I have so that is not an issue.  Anyone have any ideas how to write the SQL server process monitor?

What issue? And in what way do you want to monitor?

I need to know if there are problems with the SQL Processes.  I need to send a notification that a problem occurred so I can log onto the server and try to resolve the problem.
Idera has a product which is monitors SQL Server but does not send notification.  I need to be able to send notification whenever there is an issue.
which kind of processes you perform on sql server....... is that form of StorProc or DTS or  SSIS.

I found this solution, which looks like it is exactly what I need. 

The problem I am having is that when I run it I receve the following error:

Error 1 The type 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc.ISfcValidate' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91'. C:\Applications\SQLProcessMonitor\SQLSrverProcessMonitor.cs 35 13 SQLProcessMonitor

I believe the reason is related to the DLL that I used was in

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\SDK\Assemblies

and not

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\SDK\Assemblies
The DLL is being referenced by another DLL that you are using in your project. Add referencd to the mentioned DLL and see if it helps.
