Service Monitor

Efficiently monitor Windows services (including kernel and filesystem drivers) and instantly trigger user-defined workflows (set of Actions) when the service status changes. Actions enables you to react to the current service status (e.g., running, paused, installed) or "just changed" status, ensuring smooth and continuous operation of your system.

The Service Monitor Trigger enables you to create automated workflows (aka Tasks, jobs, flows, or robots) that seamlessly work in an unattended mode. For example, if a service is found to be not running, the Task could automatically start the service, or if the service is found to be running but not responding, the Task could automatically restart the service.

Optimize the way you handle and manage your IT infrastructure by automating routine tasks such as service monitoring and maintenance, to reduce the workload of IT staff and streamline overall IT management.
