Service status says it's running, but how can I be sure it really is running.

Is there a way to know whether a service is really running ? I can check the
status through the ServiceControll er but I need a way to make sure that the
service is actually alive and responding.

I'm looking for the equivalent of the Process.Respond ing command.

TIA - Jeff.

Then you will need to implement a similar feature in your service. either by
TCP or by any other IPC method.

What the service does? The best way to know if it's "ok" is making it to do
what he is intended to do :)

Can someone point me to a code sample that illustrates executing long running tasks (asynchronous) from a web application in ASP.NET? I assume that Web Services might come into play at some point, but I'm not sure how to get started. For example, I have an application that, upon a user initiating through a button or link click, will go out and generate a bunch of files (this could take several minutes). This will happen in batches, so I...

I wrote a program that loops through a file of records. It parses each line in the file and sends them to a web service that inserts them into an AS400DB2 database using Asynch calls. This is the wierd part. Say their are 500 records in the file. If I run the process once, maybe 250 will appear. If I run it a second time, maybe 400 or all the records will appear.

I have a C# Windows Service running as the NetworkService account because it needs to access a network share. As part of the service's initialization, I want the service to terminate, if an unrecoverable error occurs. When that case occurs, I create a ServiceController object and call the Stop() method. However - I get an exception thrown saying access denied. If I switch to using the LocalService account it works fine, but I lose...

In searching this site, i have seen plenty of posts and answers detailing how to check the status of a service. Many services, however, will "hang". Their status says that are running, but in reality the service is non-responsive. In light of this, I am using the ExecuteCommand method of the specified servicecontroller to "ping" teh service. In that method I pass it a command (an arbitrary number higher than 245). My understanding...

What would be a good way to check programmatically whether a service was running? We have a service that dies periodically and I need to check to see if this service is running. I know how to check to see if the status is in stopped or running mode. But that doesn't tell me if it is actually running. I need to know this so that if it happens I can programmatically start the same service on another machine.

I'm running sql server ver 7.0 SP4. I have an access project (.adp) that runs a view which is nothing more than a select statement. Access locks up solid when I try to run this query - with NO error messages what-so-ever. If I sign onto the server, and run the view from enterprise manager - I get: "the data provider or other service returned an E_FAIL status" !?!?! There is NO ERROR number, or further explanation of the message!!
