Third-party products for CPU and memory usage

The profile parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time is used to limit the run time for dialog work processes. However, I have noted that there are some tasks started in dialog that don't seem to be controlled by this. Are there any third-party products available that can monitor CPU and memory usage at the OS level and cancel the long-running or resource-hogging disp+work processes?
I'm sure that there are third-party tools but I wouldn't know which one to recommend. Better yet, I think you really need to isolate the problem, understand it and then act upon it. If you're working with Windows, I recommend you use Performance Monitor. You can set it up to send you an alert if the CPUs reached 100% of utilization. You can also configure CCMS inside the SAP application and have it send you alerts. Killing the work processes is usually a last resort.
