Heartbeat monitor for a remote PC?
I just repurposed an ancient Dell 2350 with Windows 7/32 and have sited it in a far corner of the basement. Its job is to collect data 24/7 from my automated weather station and upload that data every few seconds to Weather Underground, the National Weather Service and a couple of other sites. After 2 days of successful bench testing I put it into service yesterday morning and thought nothing more about it until I got an email saying no data had been received for many hours. I was unable to remote into it after that point.
Long story short, the onboard NIC may be flaky. The PC remained up but had no Network connection.
This isn't a box I need to be remoted into 24/7 (I use TightVNC and Team Viewer when necessary), but it *does* need to be up and functional as close to 24/7/365 as possible.
Is there any way to do a PC heartbeat monitor -- some kind of lightweight monitoring application that can tell me if the machine loses Internet connectivity? Preferably something free or low-cost, which sends me an email or SMS alert, or at the very least comes up on my work PC screen and flashes a warning?
Thanks in advance.
