Using Actions with Windows servers?

We're not clear how to implement Actions with our Windows servers. For instance, we use Server Monitors to monitor services and process on many Windows servers. How exactly do we use Actions to make the service or process restart if it goes down on a Windows server.

 

The help page on the subject of Actions is quite vague. It refers to using web hooks to perform the Actions on the server. Does this mean that as a Site24x7 customer, we are required to hire a developer to construct a web hook that the Action will call when the Windows service/process is down to restart it?

Re: Using Actions with Windows servers?

Agree, it would also nice if a script (bat,ps,vb) could start if a service goes down. Edit service and select:

  • Service down for the first time

    Select:

    - Alert User Group (default)
    - Alert User Group and restart service
    - Alert User Group and start script (add script here)

 

  • Service down for the second time

    Select:

    - Alert User Group (default)
    - Alert User Group and restart service
    - Alert User Group and start script (add script here)

 

  • Service down for the third time

    Select:

    - Alert User Group (default)
    - Alert User Group and restart service
    - Alert User Group and start script (add script here)

Hi,

Currently we don't have option to restart the Service or Process automatically. We are working on this feature to support from Actions. Will update once we release the feature.

Re: Re: Using Actions with Windows servers?

Hi,

We now have the option to automate the start and stop of Windows services.

Please read our documentation on how to set this up:

Hope this fits your requirement. Do let us know for any comments/suggestions.
