making sure a service is running

2 posts in this topic

Hey, I need a piece of software that periodically checks for certain services and programs and makes sure they are running. If they aren't, it starts them or alerts me. 


I haven't had luck finding the right keywords to google this. 


anything come to mind?

Key Features & Benefits of Running your Windows Service 24/7 with Service Protector
  • Constantly monitors your Windows Service and automatically restarts it whenever it fails
  • Able to detect and restart "misbehaving" services that hang, hog the CPU, or consume too much memory
  • Automatically recognizes and restarts services stuck in the Starting or Stopping state
  • Able to restart your Windows Service (or reboot the computer) at a scheduled time (tame those memory leaks!)
  • Supports the integration of your own custom failure detection utility, executed regularly to test if your Windows Service is functioning normally or not
  • Automatically dismisses common "Application error" dialog boxes that prevent crashed executables from fully exiting
  • Reports all activities to the Windows Event Log

  • Very efficient; demands minimal CPU & memory resources
  • Free, courteous technical support via email or phone
