The Service Control Manager (SCM) is similar to the Real Time Process Explorer, except with the SCM you manage the services of monitored Windows nodes instead of processes. The advantage of the SCM is that you no longer need to physically, or remotely, log in to a Windows computer to view and control its services. Information for running and stopped services is displayed directly through SAM using the Service Control Manager.

Services viewed in the Service Control Manager are polled every 25 seconds using WMI.
