The Diagnostic Policy service provides support for Resource Exhaustion Detection and Resolution (RADAR).

Start the Diagnostic Policy service

To start the Diagnostic Policy service:

  2. In the list of services, right-click Diagnostic Policy Service, and then click Start.

If the Diagnostic Policy service is not configured to start automatically, you will encounter the same error the next time you restart the system.

Configure the Diagnostic Policy service to start automatically

To configure the Diagnostic Policy service to start automatically:

  1. Click Start, click in the Start Search box, type services.msc, and then press ENTER. Microsoft Management Console will open with the Services (Local) snap-in open.
  2. In the list of services, right-click Diagnostic Policy Service, and then click Properties.
  3. In the Startup type drop-down list, click Automatic, and then click OK.

Verify

To verify that the Resource Exhaustion Detector is running:

  1. Click Start, expand All Programs, and expand Accessories.
  2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  3. At the command prompt, type sc queryex dps, press ENTER, and review the results to ensure that the Diagnostic Policy service and the Windows Diagnostic Infrastructure (WDI) service are running.
  4. At the command prompt, type tasklist /m radardt.dll, press ENTER, and review the results to ensure that Radardt.dll is loaded.

Note: The file Radardt.dll is not loaded until approximately ten minutes after the Diagnostic Policy service starts. It may not appear to be enabled if you check the system status immediately after a restart.
