Uptime Infrastructure Monitor to Restart a Service

To configure up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor to restart a Windows service:

  1. Click Services on the up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor toolbar.
  2. Click Add New Action Profile.
  3. Enter a descriptive name for the action profile in the Name of Action Profile field.
  4. Specify the number of times an error must occur before up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor sends a notification in the Start Action on Notification Number field.
  5. Specify the number of times the action will be carried out in the End Action on Notification Number field (or select the Never Stop Notifying option to continually carry out the action in this profile until the problem is resolved).
  6. Complete the following settings in the Add Action Profile window:

    • Windows Host: name of the system on which the service is running.
    • Agent Port: the port on which the up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor agent installed on the system is listening (default is 9998).
    • Windows Service: name of the Windows service that this action profile will restart.

      For example, to restart the service that creates a network connection, enter Remote Access Connection Manager in this field.

    • Action: select the Restart option.
    • up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agent Password: the password required to access the agent that is running on the monitored system.
    • Use SSL: select this option if up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor will securely communicate with the host using SSL (see Implementing HTTPS Browsing for the up.time Web Interface with Apache 2.2).
