For additional ideas check out  24x7 Event Server examples section.

24x7 Event Server is a flexible and relentless watchdog. It can detect occurrences of single point-in-time events such as error record or security alert written to system event log, CPU usage or free disk space reaching pre-defined threshold level, startup or shutdown of a specific service or application, and many other. It can also detect persistent or recurring events such as applications consuming too much CPU for a certain period of time, database or web server slow responses to user requests, hanged backup processes and many other. 24x7 Event Server supports a number of event response processing methods, so once it detects an event and alerts you to potentially damaging situations it can then take automated corrective actions like restarting failed application or service, running a fix-it user-defined script and more. 24x7 Event Server provides straightforward wizard-driven user interface that is easy to use and quick to learn. No special training is required.

24x7 Event Server provides you with advanced event auditing and reporting capabilities. It can log all detected events and performed actions to a centralized database, which allows you to monitor and control multiple computers and the entire network from a single location. It gives you enterprise-wide view of your IT systems and operations. Using this information and built-in diagnostic reports you can easily track global security problems, network congestions and outages, as well as any other global problems that may appear in your distributed production environment. This information can be also used to analyze system usage and performance trends, monitor and fine-tune your production workload balancing and a lot more.

24x7 Event Server includes a large collection of pre-built graphical reports complete with charts, tabular data, user-defined filters that provide detailed reports on all detected events, system event logs, system and application performance, services, user activity and a lot more. You can also create your own reports using any reporting tool of your choice should you not find one of the pre-built reports suitable for your requirements.
