Start/stop Windows system services
A service is a type of application that is run in the background and is comparable to a UNIX/Linux Daemon application. Services are special programs that provide functionality independent of logged-in users. Programs such as client/server applications, web servers, databases and other server-based applications are generally implemented as system services. They offer functionality for local users as well as via network.
The Z-Cron commands SERVICE-START, SERVICE-STOP and SERVICE-RESTART can automatically start, stop and restart local services.
The command SERVICE-WATCH can be used for monitoring local services. When the command is run, it checks whether the specified service is currently running, and if not, starts it.
Z-Cron offers a simple list of all services on the local computer.
In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
