Service Protector will help your Windows Services achieve 100% uptime, even when they crash, hang, leak memory, or hog the CPU. You can even plug in your own custom failure-detection script/program to identify "zombie services", which seem to be running but are not doing what they are supposed to do. Or automatically restart your Windows Service every night when no one is logged on, to cure memory leaks and other imperfections.

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, 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.
