svchost.exe Executable Program on Windows Server 2012
What is the "svchost.exe (Host Process for Windows Services)" system executable program on Windows Server 2012? I want to know how svchost.exe is used to host services.
"svchost.exe (Host Process for Windows Services)" is a Windows Server 2012 system executable program that is used to launch and host multiple Windows services.
One advantage of using svchost.exe to host services is called shared service processes, where a number of services can share a process in order to reduce resource consumption. Grouping multiple services into a single process conserves computing resources.
If a service is configured to be launched and hosted by svchost.exe, it will need two piece of information:
For example, service "CertPropSvc (Certificate Propagation)" is configured to be launched and hosted by svchost.exe. It has the following settings:
So if "CertPropSvc (Certificate Propagation)" service is started, certprop.dll will be loaded to system and hosted by a svchost.exe process labeled as "netsvcs", together with other services in this group.
