Great Application: Event Monitor (free)
since i installed .net 2.0 on my web server, i sometimes forget that you can't have .net 1.1 and .net 2.0 running in the same application pool, and then IIS kindly stops all the web sites if i make this mistake when configuring a new website.
so i wanted to get an email about it if i forget, and went looking on d'internet for a decent little app to monitor events and email me if anything goes wrong.
the best one i found is called Event Monitor
, and it is a great little program. nice enough UI and good filtering ability.
i set it up to monitor for events with id 1062 (the one that happens when i put .net 1.1 and 2.0 in the same app pool by accident..) and now i get an email straight away if it happens. 2 hours of tic-tac freshness in just 2 calories. great huh?!
