  • Send email notifications to multiple recipients
  • Easily keep track of past service interruptions via comprehensive logging
  • Control individual services (Start/Stop, Pause/Resume, Restart) directly from within Service Hawk

Security breaches take place every day, but that doesn't mean you should have to spend lots of time or money monitoring your servers just to make sure you are protected. Hackers, bugs, or even system crashes can wreak havoc on the profitability of your business if given the opportunity. You must protect yourself from disasters like this! The good news? Service Hawk can do it for you. Automatically.

Service Hawk can also periodically restart services on a user-defined schedule regardless of their state, ensuring that the service is running smoothly and stays operational. Scheduling a restart for the service will take place at the specified restart time regardless of what state the specified service is currently in (even if the service is supposedly still running). This is particularly useful for ensuring that a service is running in a healthy state. Sometimes a service will report that it is "running" but is in a hung or frozen state, so restarting the service on a user-defined schedule is a great solution in most cases.

Case Study

Imagine this scenario: You own a small ISP that runs web servers for hundreds of clients. Unexpectedly, a hacker breaks into your network and shuts down all of your web servers. You may not be aware of this tragedy for hours, but your clients sure are! This loss of web presence is cutting into their bottom line and they are losing money. Not surprisingly, several of your clients decide to take their business elsewhere because, in their eyes, you are now an unreliable company. Don't let this happen to you!

Sound far-fetched? Unfortunately, scenarios like this occur all the time and are becoming more frequent. Fortunately, Service Hawk can monitor and restart your Windows Services for you, automatically, so you will be ready when hackers or bugs in the system threaten to bring down your services.
