I have developed some windows services and noticed that at some point in time, the Windows service manager will stop and resume my service without notifying anything.

I know Windows SCM logs are located at %windir%\system32\LogFiles\Scm but I have not been able to know of any program that can interpret these files so I can view the SCM's Behaviour on this matter (these are binary files).


I found out that they can be viewed in the Event Viewer under Windows Registry > System.
