The purpose of this Monitor Pack is to Monitor for Fault related alerts only.  This pack does not collect any performance related data, it is light weight. 

This Pack includes the HDD Monitor Pack for Hard Disk Predictive Failure Alerts which can be used together with Backup so when a disk is potentially failing you could run a backup task to ensure latest data is safe:

The Monitor Pack Monitors the following:

Disk Drive Alert
System Errors
System Errors due to Serious Failure normally resulting in Dump File creation (you could create a Task that will collect the Dump and place into central Share for troubleshooting)
Application Error
System Disk Error due to Delayed Write Failure
Windows Services Status for (Crypto, DHCP, DNS, Network Connections, Plug and Play, Print Spooler, RPC and Workstation)

I hope this pack is found useful and please feel free to add to this Monitor Pack.

Please note that this pack does not provide any remediation action, these can be added as you need them.  Also feel free to change the Severity Status associated with the Alert.

Is this applicable to Windows 7 OS as well or only to Windows Server OS?
