How to create ITSI KPI for windows service status?

For Windows service I created a search like below:

eventtype=hostmon_windows Type=Service host="*" (Name="ClusSvc" OR Name="MSExchangeADTopology" OR Name="MSExchangeAntispamUpdate" OR Name="MSExchangeCompliance" OR Name="MSExchangeDagMgmt" OR Name="MSExchangeDelivery" OR Name="MSExchangeDiagnostics" OR Name="MSExchangeEdgeSync" OR Name="MSExchangeFastSearch" OR Name="MSExchangeFrontEndTransport" OR Name="MSExchangeHM" OR Name="MSExchangeHMRecovery" OR Name="MSExchangeImap4" OR Name="MSExchangeIMAP4BE" OR Name="MSExchangeIS" OR Name="MSExchangeMailboxAssistants" OR Name="MSExchangeMailboxReplication" OR Name="MSExchangePop3" OR Name="MSExchangePOP3BE" OR Name="MSExchangeRepl" OR Name="MSExchangeRPC" OR Name="MSExchangeServiceHost" OR Name="MSExchangeSubmission" OR Name="MSExchangeThrottling" OR Name="MSExchangeTransport" OR Name="MSExchangeTransportLogSearch" OR Name="MSExchangeUM" OR Name="MSExchangeUMCR" OR Name="COMSysApp" OR Name="Dnscache" OR Name="gpsvc" OR Name="HostControllerService" OR Name="IISADMIN" OR Name="LanmanServer" OR Name="LanmanWorkstation" OR Name="lmhosts" OR Name="LSM" OR Name="MpsSvc" OR Name="MSDTC" OR Name="MSMQ" OR Name="NcbService" OR Name="Netlogon" OR Name="Netman" OR Name="NetMsmqActivator" OR Name="NetPipeActivator" OR Name="netprofm" OR Name="NetTcpActivator" OR Name="NetTcpPortSharing" OR Name="ProfSvc" OR Name="RpcEptMapper" OR Name="RpcSs" OR Name="SamSs" OR Name="SessionEnv" OR Name="TermService" OR Name="W32Time" OR Name="W3SVC" OR Name="WAS" OR Name="Wcmsvc" OR Name="Winmgmt" OR Name="WinRM" OR Name="wmiApSrv" OR Name="WMSVC") StartMode="*" State="Stopped"

Threshold field as "Name"

It works only if any of the service is in stopped state since no event returns if all services are running.

Any suggestion on how to create a KPI in such scenario?

@svemuric : The issue has been fixed by creating KPI itself. Attaching KPI settings for others who requires:

@ansif  this did not work for me. and I am running a pretty small search 

Index=* Type=Service Name= *BES* host=* StartMode=* State=Stopped. 

This works on normal search but when you add it to ITSI or create a KPi base search it stops working.

Try with KPI Base searches create each service Name as a event using eval and add each service event as a Add Metrics define thresholds for each metric
