Dear Experts,

I need a C# process to run on Archive and monitor the database for certain conditions, and send email alerts when a particular event occurs. Maybe somebody could tell me how I could make a service that would do something every e.g. 20 minutes (or some other programmed time period)?

Thanks.

Use CLR trigger to send email alerts on any of the database trigger event. Alternatively can use Timer set to 20 minutes that calls a function to check with database. I prefer CLR trigger if email alerts are required soon after database change.

devarajamurthy,

Thank you for your answer. Could you tell me what Timer is? Do you have any example how it is used?

Thank you very much.

For Timer object instantiation you can use System.threading.timer class. set the interval of this object to your required time and set the routine name to be called at every interval. The routine specified will be called at specified time intervals where you can have code to send email.
