    Does anyone know of a software tool or app that monitors how well a system is performing or can see the performance of a cpu or ram?

    If you have a spare PC you can use Nagios which is a linux based monitoring system. We have been wroking on it since christmas and it is now quite advanced, currently working on trying to get us to text us critical alerts.

    I can monitor anything windows can via snmp and takes almost nothing to run.

    Thanks, I was really looking for something that would work in the background of my Windows machine.

    What kinda thing are you looking for mate? Something that will alert you when the CPU\RAM is maxed out or are you looking for something that will report on the health of a server?

    something that would show that everythings ok and that could show up bottlenecks and where system speed/performance could be improved, if there is such a thing.

    This is £700 but worth the cash IMO.

    I use ServersCheck. Does it exactly what it says on the tin, costs nothing like as much as SMS, can integrate with your mail/sms/pager gateways and has a lovely GUI front end, with a simple rules-based approach to alerts. Here's a screenshot of the web page showing the install I have on my home LAN:
