About Service Monitor

Service Monitor is a utility that works with our PowerKey and Kick-off! products to ensure that internet services running on a computer keep working.

Service Monitor works by periodically querying the chosen services running on this computer, and verifying that they respond as desired. As long as they do, Service Monitor updates a "Rebound! Timer" in the PowerKey/Kick-off! software. If the service fails for any reason, Service Monitor stops updating the corresponding timer, and PowerKey/Kick-off! can take appropriate action to restart the computer.
