Services Monitor is a free tool created for monitoring and managing the states of Windows Services. It allows you to add/remove services and to start, stop or restart them within a simple GUI interface. It’s best feature is the ability to display and auto update status of each service based on time polling (which can be defined by the user), the choice to start, stop, restart multiple services simultaneously. In other words, you can choose a time frame to start, stop or restart selected Windows Services. Services can also be added from multiple computers. It supports saving and loading lists for reuse, with added shortcuts for opening Windows Services and Event Logs.
You can start adding services from the Add button (+) icon. In case you require removing any service, click on the Remove (–) icon after selecting a service name from the list.
Service Monitor works on standalone system as well, but if you wish to monitor services from multiple computers, enter a computer name (of a network system) and click Go to find it. Clicking on the Add (+) will display a list of services which you can select to add for easy management (from a selected computer).
You can use the right-click context menu to start, stop, remove, delete and restart a service(s). The same functions can be performed from the buttons on top of the main interface.
Or by right-clicking on the system tray icon.
To set auto update status of each service based on time polling (which can be defined by the user), select Options from the Tools drop down menu. This will allow you to start, stop, restart multiple services simultaneously, based on a defined time frame.
The Tools menu also provides access to Services MMC console and Windows Event Viewer.
