Keep critical programs or executables running and be alerted when they fail. KeepAlive is compatible Windows(All). KeepAlive provides the ability to constantly monitor applications running on the server. Through experience, we have found that no matter how well the applications have been written, there still are many times when they will crash. KeepAlive scans the executables (program associated with exe) at a user determined time interval to ensure that they are running. If the executable is not running, KeepAlive will restart the executable that has failed.
There are also many notification options within KeepAlive. The first is e-mail notification. If KeepAlive restarts the failed executable, an e-mail can be sent of this action. Within the e-mail, is the time and executable that was restarted. The second notification can be accomplished by using the command line option. The command line option will execute after a restart. The command line option gives the user more flexibility for providing or interfacing alarms. One usage can be to interface to a paging application. Another would be to run another executable or job after a restart. Other warning indications provided by KeepAlive are audio and visual. All options are user configurable.
KeepAlive also provides a descriptive log of events. This log can be used for troubleshooting or just as history.
KeepAlive is the safeguard against prolonged failure of applications.
