How to stop and start services

Stopping and starting GroundWork Monitor services

In most cases, stopping, starting, and restarting any of the services is not advised. These services are interdependent upon one another. Restarting gwservices or other GroundWork Monitor services may make UI components unresponsive in the browser. If you must stop and start one of these services have all users log out of the server first.
