I have successfully setup HP event notifier to email me when there are hardware faults and when certain processes start and stop.

How can I monitor a service, i.e, when it stops something should send me an email.

I understand HP agents cannot monitor and report on a service.

please advise. thanks

Another way to do it would be to create an email based on an event, but I guess it'll work on 2008 only

i found this as well:

http://www.netwrix.com/windows_services_monitoring_freeware.html

I guess powershell would give me the most flexibility at a granular level, i.e. who logged in
at what time and what service the stopped or what folder they deleted etc etc

would I be right in also saying that powershell is the best scripting language for windows server?

You need to use WMI Event Notification to monitor the service status and then use smtp vb code to send emails. Look at the examples provided above.
