Performance Monitor - Automated alerts and Reports RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have VM’s with Windows Server 2008 R2.Currently they host applications that run on their on JVM.

    Simple Requirements

    1. To set up some automated alert probably via email to individuals or groups on the Windows Server 2008 R2 in case of high memory faults / CPU usage, critical errors ; that could later cause server crashes.
    2. And also set up some daily performance / resource monitor Windows Server 2008 report to be emailed.

    Only concern for both the requirements is by turning these both activities hopefully it shouldn’t cause using up of disk space for writing the log file or reports. Else we will have to write job to clean these logs. Would be nice if the performance Monitor can self-clean these logs files if any created.

    And also it should not cause any additional I/o or CPU increase by turning this feature.

    I did read about the ‘Performance Monitor” could not comprehend what tasks are required to perform the above requirements.

    kind regards

  • You can use a third part tool for this, like GFI Event Monitor.

    This will meet all your requirements.
