  • I am trying to monitor website and FTP site hosted on IIS5. as well as windows services also.(To check is it started or stopped)?

    server is windows server 2000.

                static void Main(string[] args)
                    ServiceController[] scServices;
                    scServices = ServiceController.GetServices();

                    foreach (ServiceController scTemp in scServices)

                        if (scTemp.ServiceName == "Simple Service")
                            // Display properties for the Simple Service sample
                            // from the ServiceBase example.
                            ServiceController sc = new ServiceController("Simple Service");
                            Console.WriteLine("Status = " + sc.Status);
                            Console.WriteLine("Can Pause and Continue = " + sc.CanPauseAndContinue);
                            Console.WriteLine("Can ShutDown = " + sc.CanShutdown);

  • Why not? Service Manager is also available on Win2000. You just need to check the status of "msftpsvc" service.

    However, I think the most effective way is to connect to port 21 of target computer with System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient and then use a Timer to send null character ('\0') every 25 seconds. If failed and retry 3 times still failing, declare the FTP server dead.

  • Hi TCPK,

    If you want to retrieve web site information in the iis, you could try IIS ADSI Provider and DirectoryEntry, and the following article provide a sample for your reference.
