Couple of questions/suggestions for something new. Do you know of any software that will do the following:
1. Monitor a file that is periodically growing in size, and notify the user when it reaches a certain size? I archive email to .pst files and need to know when they are approching the size of a CD so I can burn it and delete it from my hard drive. Thoughts?
2. Monitor an application or internal web address to make sure it is active, and report to the user if it is not? I have a video surveillance piece of software running on a remote PC with a web interface to it (or I can remote desktop into the machine). I need to make sure the surveillance software is running. The software won't run as a service (as far as I know), so if the machine reboots due to power outage, etc. it can be days before I realize the system hasn't launched the software and hasn't been recording. Thoughts?
