I'd like to monitor the print spooler service on three of my Windows Servers (2003 and 2008R2). Ideally, I'd like them to warn me with an email.

Hi,
please have a look at the "Windows Print Queue Sensor" for that purpose.
Best regards

Not what I'm looking for. I wanted something to look at the Print Spooler Service, not the individual printers. I want to know if the print spooler service stops which sometimes happens. Isn't there a sensor which can monitor a windows service?
