ProtoMon can execute any console application, wait until it is finished, and receive its standard output. Despite of a modest appearance, in conjunction with Content Parser it becomes one of the most powerful monitors. Especially considering that the content parser can save the parsed content and compare previously saved values with the new ones.

Console monitor

All this thanks to the batch files, which give you many additional posibilities. They can implement complex logic and program flow, do math, run another programs, execute scripting engines, manage processes, files and registry, and much more.

Write a batch file that performs the necessary task and sends result to the standard output, and specify the content parser and success criteria in PotoMon, to identify whether result was successful or not. ProtoMon will do the rest: scheduled monitoring and reporting, statistics gathering, and sending notifications on failures.
