Work performed by a server. A service can be a simple request for data to be sent or stored (as with file servers, HTTP servers, e-mail servers, and finger servers), or it can be more complex work such as that of print servers or process servers.
A component of an overall system. The Calendar Server has the following services: Administration Service (csadmind). HTTP Service (cshttpd), Notification Service (csnotifyd), Event Notification Service (enpd), and Distributed Database Service (csdwpd).
A Windows NT program which runs under the Windows NT service manager. As such, it can be started automatically at boot time. A default Windows NT installation has several services configured. One example is the DHCP client. The iIM Server installation tool configures two Windows NT services: the iPlanet Connection Multiplexor, and the iPlanet Instant Messaging Server.
In Win32, an executable object that is installed in a registry database maintained by the Service Control Manager. The executable file associated with a service can be started at boot time by a boot program or by the system, or it can be started on demand by the Service Control Manager. The two types of service are "Win32 service" and "driver service."
A Message Server abstraction that collects settings information - usually to set up communication protocols, such as ISP settings - and specific folders for a given single instance of an MTM.
For the purposes of the Sun Ray software, any application that can directly connect to the Sun Ray appliance. It can include audio, video, X servers, access to other machines, and device control of the appliance.
In a client/server environment, a function performed by a server at the request of a client or of another server. The service is usually associated with accessing a resource manager, typically a database. In Panther, all services must be defined in the JIF.
The act of putting the ball into play by the Server.
One of the services managed through the Internet Service Manager. These include the WWW, Gopher, and FTP services provided by Internet Information Server, and the Web Proxy and WinSock Proxy services provided by Microsoft Proxy Server.
A program that can be automatically started as part of the operating system start-up process and that runs continuously in the background. Specific information about the program and its configuration is recorded in the operating system's registry. It's this configuration information that identifies the program and turns it into a service. Services can be manipulated using the Services MMC snap-in (e.g. in Computer Management) or by the sc command. service may require other services to operate; in this case, the first service is said to be dependent on the these other services. If a depended upon service isn't running or can not be started, the service(s) that are dependent won't start either. For example, the Print Spooler service is dependent on the Remote Procedure Call service.
A core object used in a Wireless Edition server to represent a unit of information requested by, and delivered to, a Wireless Edition client. An end user typically sees a service as a menu item on a device or as a link on a Web page.
A program that performs a primary function within a server or related software.
a collection of one or more Application Servers. A service definition determines how requests are routed to these servers and sometimes describes how to start new Application Servers as they are needed. Services are defined in the Application Broker configuration file.
A service is a program running on a remote machine that in one way or another provides a service to users. For example, when you visit a website the remote server displays a web page via its web server service.
Services are implementations of individual application-level protocols, such as HTTP, FTP, or DHCP.
The means of starting a rally, in which a player throws the ball upwards at least 16cm and strikes as it is falling, so that it touches first the server's court and then the receiver's court.
Be nice to your opponent once in a while. Pick the *shuttle from the floor after you've won a *rally and pass it to him. He may do anything with it that he wants - except returning it of course.
A class of servers providing similar or related functionality and requiring similar authentication. PAM policies are defined on a per-service basis, so all servers that claim the same service name will be subject to the same policy.
A single client or service that can be installed on a server.
The stroke used to put the shuttlecock into play at the start of each rally; also called a "serve".
In Windows operating systems, a way of running applications when the user ID running the application is not logged on.
Data or operation made available to network clients through a virtual server; not necessarily a service.
Every point begins with a serve. From a position behind the baseline, the server has to hit the ball diagonally over the net into the opponent's service court. Players get two attempts to serve the ball correctly in each point. In the first point of any game or set, the serve is played from the right-hand side of the court. After this the server alternates side ,from right to left and vice-versa, at the start of every new point.
An executable process installed in the registry and administered by Windows NT. Once a service is created and started, it can run even when no user is logged on to the computer.
The sharing of information and/or data between programs and computers from a single "server" to multiple "clients". HTTP, FTP, NFS, etc. are services.
A collection of operations, accessible through one or more interfaces, that allows a user to evoke a behaviour of value to that user. A service is delivered by a server. A "service instance" is another name for a server. In the GeoConnections Discovery Portal, a service is a description of professional services, online services and software provided by registered organizations or individuals. See 8.2, What Can You Register and Promote With The Discovery Portal?, for a listing of Discovery Portal services.
A resource provided to network clients; often provided by more than one server (for example, remote file service).
In Windows NT environment, a boot-time background application is refered to as a service. These are generally managed through the control panel while logged in as an account with "Administrator" level capabilities. For more information, consult your Windows manual or the MSKB. SGML SGML stands for "Standard Generalized Markup Language". Created in the 1980's to provide an extensible means to maintain documentation based upon content instead of presentation, SGML has withstood the test of time as a robust, powerful language. XML is the "baby brother" of SGML; any valid XML document it, by definition, a valid SGML document. The document you are reading is written and maintained in SGML, and is also valid XML if you modify the Document Type Definition.
A type of program that runs in the background on a Windows NT Workstation or Server. A service can be considered a special piece of server software in its own right. Running multiple services on the same physical computer is possible, and is rather like running multiple servers. A individual service can be reset (rather like rebooting) by stopping and starting the service. This is sometimes known as recycling the service. An example of a service is the Spooler Service which controls the print output to the printer connected to a server, and so can be considered the printer server in NT. To reboot just the print server, stop then start the Spooler Service from the Control Panel Services option. Examples of services are:- Server, Workstation, Spooler, DHCP, WINS, Proxy. A list of installed services can be obtained in the Control Panel Services option. See also Windows NT, Server, Workstation, Software, Printer, Reboot and Control Panel.
1. A resource that is provided to network clients, often by more than one server. For example, if you rlogin to the machine boston.eng.example.com, then that machine is the server that provides the rlogin service. 2. A security service (either integrity or privacy) that provides a level of protection beyond authentication. See also integrity and privacy.
A program, routine, or process that performs a specific system function to support other programs at the operating systems level, such as a Windows NT service. A service is a Windows NT service or a COM+ service that runs on a server. In the Health and Activity Tracking (HAT) tool, a UI element.

1. (Also, network service) A resource provided to network clients; often provided by more than one server. For example, if you use rlogin to log in to the machine boston.eng.acme.com, then that machine is the server providing the rlogin service. 2. A security service can be either integrity or confidentiality, providing a level of protection beyond authentication. See also authentication, integrity, and confidentiality.
A program, routine, or process that performs a specific system function to support other programs, particularly at a low (close to the hardware) level. When services are provided over a network, they can be published in Active Directory, facilitating service-centric administration and usage. Some examples of services are the Security Accounts Manager service, File Replication service, and Routing and Remote Access service. See also: Active Directory; Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP); Service Profile Identifier (SPID)
From The Platform for Privacy Preferences 1.0 (P3P1.0) Specification ( 2002-04-16) A program that issues policies and (possibly) data requests. By this definition, a service may be a server (site), a local application, a piece of locally active code, such as an ActiveX control or Java applet, or even another user agent. Typically, however, a service is usually a Web site.
