Windows Service
Describes how automatic windows service is not running alert works

Windows Service alert configuration screen

'Windows Service is not running' alarm is raised, when one of the Windows Service with automatic startup type is not running on the monitored server.

There is almost no need for any configuration - all Windows Services with automatic startup type are monitored.

You can specify which Windows Services are ignored, as some tend to start and stop, when there is no work for them. Most common Windows Services that can safely be ignored are added to this list automatically. This prevents "'IaasVmProvider' is not running" and "'VSS' is not running" alarms.
