Are you using .NET? ASP.NET Health Monitoring may fit what you're looking for.

ASP.NET health monitoring enables system administrators to monitor the status of deployed Web applications.

All of my web applications are written in ASP.NET. But i need to monitor other thing, than just web applications, like a whole server, windows service, sql server etc. I heard about ASP.NET Health Monitoring before, but it can only monitor web applications, am i right? – Feryt Jan 11 '10 at 21:19

Nagios .. will do EVERYTHING. Use the NSClient+ for Windows machines:

Isn't Nagios Linux based system? I found very promising. – Feryt Jan 12 '10 at 7:45
Nagios is Linux based, but with virtualization these days and Linux being free as well as free virtualization options, it trumps spiceworks any day. Spiceworks is a good system, I have used it and it works great when you want more than monitoring. It has a lot of other stuff built into it that is not just monitoring, and the monitoring is not that fantastic and doesn't support everything. What is great about Nagios is that is supports everything and has a great community for support. – Shadow00Caster Jan 12 '10 at 18:46
out the box nagious does not do EVERYTHING but the good thing is that with a little work it can be made to EVERYTHING! – tony roth Apr 5 '10 at 14:44

PRTG Network Monitor runs on Windows, has a web interface, monitors system health as well as application status. It is not a free product, but a "freeware" version is available, limiting you to 10 sensors.
