You can monitor the status of your Panel-managed server without logging in to Panel. To do this, you need to access your server over Remote Desktop.
A utility called Parallels Plesk Panel Services Monitor is loaded automatically every time Panel starts. To manage the status of Panel's services, open the Parallels Plesk Panel Services Monitor by double-clicking its icon in the taskbar. The look of the icon depends on the state of crucial Panel services: the icon means that all Panel's services are functioning, and the icon means that some services are stopped or not working correctly.
Once you open the Services Monitor, you can see the status of all vital Panel's services. The icon indicates that a corresponding service is working correctly, and the icon indicates that the corresponding service is stopped or is not working correctly.
To stop a service, select the corresponding checkbox and click Stop.
To restart a service, select the corresponding checkbox and click Restart.
To start a service, select the corresponding checkbox and click Start.
Note: You can use Select All and Clear All buttons to select or clear all available checkboxes.
To refresh the list of services and their respective statuses, click Refresh.
To remove all information about Panel sessions from Panel's database and disconnect all users from Panel, click Delete Sessions. This is useful when you need to restart Panel, but some users are still connected to it, and you want to avoid possible data loss or files corruption.
Note: You can also start, stop, restart services and delete sessions by right-clicking the Parallels Plesk Panel Services Monitor icon and selecting the required option from the menu.
To hide the Services Monitor back in the taskbar, click Hide.
