    Started using Orion NPM about 2 months ago and love it. Can do alot with it. Great for monitoring routers/switches/AP's etc.

          Will Ip monitor monitor and alert me if my servers and routers go down?

          I really don't want to spend the money for ORION ..is there a part or orion that does this with out having to buy the entire tool??

          thanks

              There are different pieces of Orion that have tools. NPM is good for monitoring routers/switches etc. It can monitor servers via snmp but it cant monitor services/applications. They have another tool called Application Monitor or something that does that. I agree that Orion isnt cheap but its worth it in my opinion. Check out the solarwinds website. They do have some free tools that may help.

                Nagios is the best and cheapest (free) that you'll find. It will let you know a lot about your servers and devices. If something's down, it will let you know when it polls that device/server again either via sms (easiest) or email.
