How can one system process stop and start another process?
Posted on 2004-08-23
I have several System Processes running that communicate via the MSMQ. For some reason one of them “goes bad” once in a while. Have not been able to figure out exactly why yet. Do know if I stop and start that process (“cycle power”), it starts working again and things are fine.
So I thought I could have a “Monitor” process, which would not only email me if things went bad, but also stop and start or “cycle power” on a process which seemed to be the problem.
Well, this is not working because the “Monitor” process does not have the authority to stop and start another process. I do not know how to give it such authority. Is this possible? Could this be a big problem? Help!
