I am currently running Monitis on a few Windows Servers and I'm looking for a tool that would restart an application (exe file) if it crashes or consumes too much memory. Please could you provide any recommendations for such tools?

Many Thanks,

Tim Harvey

Have a look at SRVANY.EXE from Microsoft. It'll allow you to run an .exe as a service; once defined as service, you can set up dependencies, recovery, etc.

Another option would be to write a batch/script file that runs every x minute/hour, polls for current processes and if your.exe isn't running, starts it again.
