Monitor programs

Z-Cron Icon

The Z-Cron commands WATCH and WATCH-JOB are intended to monitor programs on the local computer. This ensures that important programs are actually executed.

Z-Cron Programm Check

WATCHThe WATCH checks if an instance of the specified EXE file is running. Otherwise, the program is started. It is possible to specify command line arguments for starting the program. (These parameters are ignored in the Freeware Version and can only be used in the Professional or Server Versions.)

In contrast to the WATCH command, the program is not restarted, but instead an existing freely selectable Z-Cron job

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.
