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.
