The tray monitor detects the services/instances as running, while they are not running.

Weird enough if you click on "Shutdown instance", the service/instance starts running. And vice-versa.

Scenario: I have 2 MySQL services named "mysqlSERVERx" where x is 1, and 2. The services are set to Manual, not Automatic. And the Tray Monitor is not launched at Login, but launched by a shortcut.

How to repeat:
Just install two services of two MySQL servers. Don't start them.
Launch the Tray Monitor. On right click, you should see that each server says "Shutdown instance", while they are in fact not up.

Thank you for the bug report. I am not able to repeat the issue reported.
I have 2 service instance installed (both were installed using the installer)
and both are displayed as stopped were actually are. How you installed the
services?. Thanks in advance.

I have figured it out, I think.

The context menu looks like this for each server


Icon is ok (shows green or red). Status is ok (shows running or stopped).
Server option to Start or Shutdown Instance... that one is always on "Shutdown instance" on startup (with scan interval set to 1 minute, as I have it), no matter the status of the server.

If you put 1 second scan interval, then it SEEMS ok.

I would assume that one startup there's a glitch in setting up the server option start/shutdown. The others (icon and status text) are ok, but there's probably a difference between the startup check and updating of the context menu, and the interval check and updating of the context menu.

Many thanks for writing a bug report. We are on the way to implement full functionality of
MySQL GUI tools into MySQL Workbench. We won't fix this anymore.
