How to get alerted when Windows service changes its state?

Can an alert be sent when a Windows service is stopped and/or started?

Q: Can an alert be executed when Windows service changes its state (starts or stops)?

A: Yes. You need to create a Windows Service monitor (Windows Service monitoring help)

This monitor will be in OK state if service is running and in the Down state if service is stopped.

You can create an alerting rule which would instruct IPHost to send alerts upon monitor state transition from OK to Down and back from Down to OK – Alerts creating help
