Windows Server Monitor

When you install your application as a service on Windows, you also install a server monitor. This monitor is a client to the server manager which controls starting and stopping of an application or mediation server.

System changes can make the server monitor system tray icon disappear while the process is still running. If you cannot make your icon reappear, try running
pmtray -r from a command line, then restart the server monitor.
