I use an old product called IPMonitor that essentially looks to see if SQL is running on the AOG Listener.

I guess I already told you few times about monitoring SQL Server. Invest in a good monitoring tool.
From my experience and especially for Microsoft's products, I use SCOM.
When you need to expand the monitoring to other OS and DBMS, then I'll recommend BMC Patrol.

Mind that they aren't cheap solutions but what they provide, pays for dozens of people monitoring and customizing their own monitoring scripts.

tks victor,

but do you use any script to monitor it ? basic monitoring ?

I use Idera SQL tools  before and it seems it doesn't support it but I might try it later.

SCOM is expensive and I heard it is not good, isn't it ?
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
No. Like I said, if we're paying for SCOM and BMC Patrol, why should we loose time developing monitoring scripts? The idea is to take from us those kind of tasks and not put more work on us.
