c# .net remoting process management

I am considering using .net remoting to seperate processes locally, rather than have them in one very large and slow application.  The hardest part seems to be process management.  For instance , if one process crashes and needs to be restarted, all sorts of errors arise.

Are there any resources that explain how this should be managed in usable way?

thanks

Can you explain a little more about what you mean?  Is the problem if a process crashes and needs restarted how will your remoting service know?  Or how will it act?

yes, that is exactly whaat i mean.  How to get the app to appear to run as a single app, when in fact there are many services that could crash or be restarrted manually.  To work well, when there is a crash it should be automatically restarted.

That is just walking straight into dangerous territory when (like you say) a process is killed or crashes, you would need to constantly monitor it and if you're own process died - that would be the end of everything it was "holding".  I can see the users of that, but hiding processes (like you want to) is unsupported.

what do you mean unsupported?

If your main process crashes the user will restart it.  If the other services crash then the main app will restart it if configured to auto restart, else they would be restarted manually if manual.  Not disimilar to win services.

Just that MS (although why is beyond me if they include it, same with using C# to work with Excel is really unsupported ) don't offer much guidance or support for hiding processes and running 1 main service to control them.

Actually, I have never asked Microsoft for support in the past so probably won't start now.

Are there any resources that explain how this should be managed in usable way?
