Systray Utility to check SQL Server Service

I have developed this utility to monitor the instances of SQL Server running in a machine (i.e only standalone and not remote machines) and to send failure mail alerts upon service status. When I tried this type of systray utility in internet I could find only utilities that are monitoring the service and not sending any alerts on failures, so Ive decided to add this feature in this. I hope this small utility could help you a lot.


Depends on three condition the systray icon will gets changed, If all the SQL Services are running then you can find a green play icon, if any of the SQL services is down then you can see a orange play icon, if all the SQL Services are down then you can find red stop icon as shown below.

Status Icon
All the instances are running systray1
One of the instances is down (in stopped state) systray2
All the instances are down (in stopped state) systray3


  • Make sure you have installed .Net 3.5 framework in the machine
