How will I get notified if the server get into hung state

Dear Techies,

How will get alerted of the server hung state in SolarWinds NPM or SAM. Maybe through SNMP or WMI. Kindly let me know your thoughts about this feature.

SNMP and wmi would not directly be able to tell you if a service is hung only if it is running or not. If the service has wmi performance counters associated with it you might be able to see if the actions on the counters drop to zero. But realistically the best way to monitor if a service is not doing what that service is supposed to do is to put together some kind of transaction that test the service or what it supposed to do directly. If the service runs a website you load the website oh, if the service allows incoming requests on a given Port then you build a command line utility that shoots requests at that port
