Hi Exchange9,

Thanks for ur advise, these were VERY GOOD material to go through.
The last link worked for me, i had to flip a bit for windows server 2008 r2 but that is okay.

Problem is this thing can run at max for a week.

This must work FOREVER & not a week or day.

So in future at time if CPU utilization reaches 90% same instance i should get an email saying cpu utilization exceeded..

Any idea....

May be a powershell script or something else...

Have you looked into Microsoft's System Center Ops Manager (aka SCOM)?


It would meet this need, plus alert on a million other things, drive usage, latency, email queues, etc.
