Today I have found a nice little utility called Application Monitor that constantly runs in the background and monitors critical system applications/processes that you have configured in the setup. If any of these monitored applications has aborted for one reason or the other it will automatically restart that application. Polling interval for the monitoring can be configured for each of the application added to be monitored.
Most interesting thing is that it can also send alert email at the specified email address to the user about the application termination (possible because of some malfunctioning at the software or the hardware level). Be default event logging is also enabled that may also be a source of helpful information when diagnosing.
This application is particularly useful for system admins as it will allow them to get rid of the hassle involved in monitoring all critical system applications running on a server manually(such as web server, database server, mail server etc.). May also be useful for some home users as well if they want to ensure that an application is running continuously in Windows.
