    Run script when monitor fails

      I'm trying to come up with a method of running a script on a server to do some actions, but I want this to kick off when a CPU usage monitor that I have set up goes into fail/down

      Help?

          could you create an 'alert' for when this goes down but use the 'external process' option?  put your script into a format that the 'external process' monitor will understand or use it to kick off your script somehow.

              I have the cpu alert in place but I need it to trigger an external process monitor on fail. I don't think they can be combined into one monitor

              I have vbs script to kill and restart some services and apps on the server, just trying to find a way to tie the actions together - when the CPU monitor goes "down" (CPU usage is over 90%) then the script executes to kill and restart the processes
