Add button to interface to restart a windows service

Hi,

please include a button to make it possible to restart a misbehaving Windows service with one click.

That means of course that you have to disable the automated task management via the site. And you have to remember to reenable this at the end of the day...

Bitdefender service restart timeout

The default restart timeout on all bitdefender services currently is set on 720 minutes, meaning that when te service fails to start or crashes it takes 12 hours to restart.

The problem is that when the Windows Service Check - Windows Update is running an alarm is being generated because the service is not running. Looks like Microsoft changed the design of many services to be triggered services ...more »

Disable Microsoft Automatic Updates

We have had issues with horrendous conflicts between Languard in the cloud application and Microsoft automatic updates. Support has just told me that best practice is to disable the automatic update service on systems enabled for GFI patch management. The GFI cloud installer should prompt the installer to disable the automatic update service when the client is installed if the patch management service will be enabled ...more »

Add Windows Service Check - Service Dropdown

The fact that the services drop down list is unsearchable is unforgivable. This is especially apparent when there are thousands of services when creating monitoring templates. There needs to be a way of filtering / searching for checks using a searchable drop down which is a standard UI element.
