There is no such tool on Linux. You can run your services 
using mono-service. Please see the man page for its options.
Currently it is not possible to start two services from one 
EXE. You have to run mono-service twice to get both services.

The last time I've checked eventlog wasn't implemented. There
was some discussion about sending it to syslog (var/log/messages)
but I don't know if someone implemented this.
