I know you can monitor when a .exe is running or not and if it is not running it will alarm. How can I setup a sensor to alarm when an .exe is running and when it is not running the status would be green.

-exe process wmi

This is not currently possible, but such an option is being considered, at the time being. Please bear with us.

This would be a pretty important one for us. We run call centres and our call recording servers when they are having issues startup a process called Alarm.exe and we would like to be able to montior when that process starts.

Currently, you could work around this using the status() function of Sensor Factory sensors. A built-in option should be available in the future, albeit I would be hard pressed to let you know when.
