Managing System Services

A system service is a portion of the operating system that is required for certain functions to occur. For example, one system service is the Spooler service. The Spooler service allows print jobs to be accepted from an application and passed on to the printer when the printer is ready. Without the Spooler service, your computer would hold up your application while it was printing.

System services build upon the base operating system, currently installed hardware devices, and other system services. Figure 8.1 shows how system services can fit within the Windows NT operating system environment.
