Overview: Auto Restart Windows Service

Why do I need Service Protector? Isn't the builtin Windows Service Recovery good enough?

Windows 2000 introduced a basic service recovery mechanism to handle Services that stop prematurely. When a Windows Service stops abnormally (i.e. while not in the stopped state) it can be restarted, a program can be run, or the machine can be rebooted. While this minimal functionality will be adequate for many, professionals in mission-critical environments will appreciate the advanced features that Service Protector offers, including:

  1. Hang detection: Non-responsive Windows Services or those "stuck" in the Stopping or Starting states for too long can be automatically restarted.

  2. CPU hog detection: Windows Services consuming too much CPU can be auto-restarted.

  3. Memory hog detection: Windows Services eating up RAM can be terminated and restarted to release the memory.

  4. 24/7 uptime: The builtin functionality will only take action when a Windows Service stops "abnormally" (i.e. when not in the stopped state). So if a user or program stops your Service, or if your Service fails to start at boot, it will not be restarted. Service Protector will auto-restart your Windows Service, no matter how it stops.

  5. Email: Notifications are sent whenever a Windows Service fails and has to be restarted.

  6. Extensibility: Add your own your own, customized failure detection plugins to detect and restart "zombie" Windows Services

  7. Workflow: Run a batch file or program prior to restarting your Windows Service.

  8. Scheduled restarts: Restart your Windows Service (or reboot the PC) at specific times. Minimize the effects of memory leaks, etc. and keep your service "fresh"!

  9. Daily/Weekly reports: Service Protector will email you summaries of restarts, crashes, etc.

  10. Dismiss "Application Error" windows: These pesky "I have crashed!" message boxes can hold up the action. Service Protector will automatically click them.
