Detecting Hung state of OS using Nimsoft

Hi all,


We recently came across a scenario where a host which went into hung state despite it was reachable via ping from external network. However the host was not reachable via SSH. After logging into the host, we found that the swap space utilization was 100% and no new processes was getting launched from the OS.


Is it possible to detect such case with Nimsoft ? I could define hung state in general where OS stops spawning new processes.
