Datadog: Introducing availability monitoring for Windows Services
Today we’re pleased to announce that we’ve added Windows Service checks to Datadog, available in Datadog Agent 5.2. Services are a core component of Windows and are responsible for spawning processes required for the OS and third-party applications to operate. By configuring checks for your Windows Services you’ll have full visibility into their availability status (up or down) and can get notifications when a service stops running. The Datadog Windows Service integration supports both native services such as Windows Remote Management and Windows Task Scheduler along with applications like MS Exchange, MS SQL, or third-party services.
Monitor your Windows Services
Once Windows Service checks have been configured in the Datadog Agent, they can be used to build Monitors for notification purposes. You can create Monitors that fire only after a certain number of service checks fail, if a service is in a specific state after a certain number of checks, or based on a simple up/down check.
