Services provide important functionalities; if they are not running correctly, the system's performance might suffer. To prevent critical errors, Windows services are restarted automatically in case of crashes - usually without the user ever noticing the process.
For power users monitoring the use of resources by services and processes might be interesting. The process and service sensors of ServerSentinel provide expert monitoring. In case of services, status and startup type can be queried - a useful addition.
But information gathering is not the only task ServerSentinel will perform. You can also use it to monitor your system's performance: if a service claims too much space, a warning can be sent to you via email or text message. You can also use ServerSentinel to make sure that the startup type of essential services is set to "automatic". Should this status change, ServerSentinel will inform you or use an action to correct the mistake.
The process and service sensor is available for Windows and Linux (Enterprise Edition only).
Additionally, ServerSentinel can start or close services via the service management action.
