You can configure ipMonitor to email you at set intervals to let you know it is still running. Here's how:
- Go to "Configuration" tab.
- Click "System Settings"
- Within the "On Process Start" section, click the "Enable" button and enter your email address.
- Next to "Continue to Send an Email", click the "Enable" button and specify the time interval.
- Click OK.
Hope this helps.

After leaving a post and thinking about the problem I came up with a simple solution. I created an external monitor process that just writes a time stamp to a file in the ipmonitor log folder. The following is the onliner that I used
get-date | set-content "C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\ipMonitor\logs\heartbeat.log"
Unless the powershell script has a problem accessing a log file, ie..some weird file locking problem or the path is bad, it will always exit with a 0 which ipmonitor checks to see that it was successful.
Thanks Chris for the suggestion.
