Monitor Windows services on a device with SolarWinds N-central
Monitor Windows services using the SolarWinds N-central service, "Windows Service". When you enable monitoring with SolarWinds N-central, a new instance of the SolarWinds N-central service is created with the name of the Windows service appended to the name of the SolarWinds N-central service instance.
For example, enabling monitoring of the Windows service called DHCP Client creates a new instance of the SolarWinds N-central service with the name
"Windows Service - DHCP Client".
This feature is only available for managed Windows devices with SolarWinds N-central agents installed.
- In the navigation pane, click Views > All Devices and click the Network Devices tab.
- Click the device Name.
- Click Tools > Services.
- In the Monitored column, enable or disable monitoring.
- Click Save.
Disabling the monitoring of a Windows service will remove all instances of the SolarWinds N-central service from the target device.
SolarWinds N-central begins monitoring the selected service.
