What is a Windows Service Alert Condition?


In every Conditional Alert you can create as many Service Alert Conditions to monitor specific Windows Service(s) on the target computer. The conditions can be triggered if the particular MS Windows Service is detected to be Stopped or Not Running and remain that way for an extended period of time (the Trigger Threshold). NOTE: Stopped is true if the Windows Service is actually in a Stopped state. Not Running is true if the Windows Service is NOT in a Running state, which includes Stopped but can also be other Service states like Paused, Starting, Stopping, Start Pending, etc.


To add a Service Alert Condition, in the Create / Edit Conditional Alert window click the + Service Condition button on the toolbar. To edit an existing condition you can click the PencilStub16  in the Conditions List.


This will bring up the MS Windows Service Condition window (see below).
