Start and Configure the Server

Although the Monitor daemons are started automatically upon startup, there may be times where a daemon should be restarted. This section describes how to control the daemons from the command line (CLI).

CLI-based Operation

To control daemons in the CLI, a utility is provided called vovdaemonmgr

Note: Daily log files generated by system daemons are now automatically compressed (non-Windows only).

vovdaemonmgr: Usage Message
  This is the command to show the status of daemons. You can also use this
  command to start/stop the daemons.
  NOTE: This command can only be used by the owner of the vovserver and on the
  machine where the vovserver runs.
      vovdaemonmgr <SUBCOMMAND> [OPTIONS] [daemonsList]
  SUBCOMMAND is one of:
      list     -- List the configured daemons. (list -all for all daemons)
      restart  -- Restart the specified daemons.
      show     -- Show the status of the specified daemons.
      status   -- Same as 'show'.
      start    -- Start the specified daemons.
      stop     -- Stop the specified daemons.
  [daemonsList] is optional. When omitted, act on all daemons.
      -v         -- Increase verbosity
      -h         -- This help
      -f         -- Force flag (for start only). If the start subcommand
                    has an explicit daemonsList, the specified daemons
                    will be started even if not configured.
      % vovdaemonmgr list
      % vovdaemonmgr list -all
      % vovdaemonmgr status
      % vovdaemonmgr status vovpreemptd
      % vovdaemonmgr start vovnotifyd
      % vovdaemonmgr start -force vovresourced
      % vovdaemonmgr start -force -v -v vovresourced
      % vovdaemonmgr stop vovlad
