Many software applications that run on Windows NT, 2000 or above run as windows services, running as background processes with no direct user interface and no logged-on user (e.g. as a server). They are typically started automatically and therefore are expected to stay running. If any of these important services should fail, many users and external services are immediately affected and so ensuring that these services are running continuously is a key requirement for most system administrators.
Windows service monitoring hence becomes vital and so requires organizations to deploy appropriate windows service monitoring tools to do the job.
OpManager's Windows service monitoring software allows you to monitor windows services either locally or across multiple servers on the network. OpManager supports monitoring Windows services via WMI, and does not require an agent to be installed on each remote machine.
Windows service monitoring capabilities of OpManager helps remove the burden off an IT admin's shoulders by putting monitoring and troubleshooting tasks on auto-pilot. OpManager's windows service monitoring tool can seamlessly perform:
OpManager's Windows service monitor notifies you instantly when any of your windows services turn dormant. OpManager generates alarms which can be delivered as notifications. Configure notification profiles on OpManager and get the alarms delivered to you via e-mail, SMS or through Slack notifications. This swift delivery of fault notifications helps expedite the troubleshooting process and in turn helps minimize downtime.
OpManager's windows service monitor saves you the hassle of manual troubleshooting with its workflows. Once the faults have been identified, OpManager's workflows help you automate the troubleshooting process without any manual intervention. Restarting the service or rebooting the server when a service fails can be completely automated with OpManager's workflows.
