Hi,

You can use Performance Monitor (built-in feature of MS) but unfortunately there isn't any option to send as mail alerts but the logs can be generated in event logs each time there is an alert. The procedure to set up can be found here https://www.microsoftpressstore.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2217266&seqNum=2

Hope this helps

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Most server manufacturers like HP etc include such tools with their servers, and you normally get them with their CD's or DVD's. But usually you also have to install the software on a management PC which collects all the data from the servers. You can then either monitor that PC, or set it up so that it sends emails or SMS when something drops below the specs you set.

I suggest you use Splunk as it can notify you for various thresholds as well as it can support non-Windows devices also.
