Windows 2003 - Trigger Alert/Write to log when application hits threshold virtual memory size

Hi,

I have a Windows 2003 Std server running Citrix Metaframe 4.0. Citrix is advertising a web based app that has a bug. When an instance of the web app processes large amounts of data, the application's virtual memory occasionally resizes to over 700MB causes the application to crash out, with knock on issues to other threads running instances of the web app.

I want to monitor this activity with a trigger or alert, so that when an instance of this application hits a virtual memory size of 700MB, the time, and user running the app instance are recored in a log file.

The web server spooling the application instances is Apache, and not IIS.

Please help!

You can setup a VBS / Batch script for execution which can email you or what not once the threshold has been hit.

I was looking for an example of an implementation of a similar trigger/alert and not the Microsoft generic guide to triggers/alerts.
