Monitoring tools for SAP downtime

My client is running SAP R/3 4.6B on Windows 2000. Do you have available script or monitoring tools that checks and page if SAP is down? I have a script for HP Unix but not on Windows 2000. Your help is sincerely appreciated. I'm an avid reader of your materials.

The essential tool to get this done is "sapinfo.exe", which is part of the SAP FrontEnd. SAPinfo.exe returns error codes to help you determine if an SAP system seems to be down.
