clean method to stop metron-ui and rest-api

Expert Contributor

Hi,

I started the metron-ui and rest-api from commande line as explained in the HCP doc.

What's the clean way (command) to stop the metron-ui and the rest-api?

Thanks,

Michel

Frankly, there is no clean way to do it, at least not before HCP-1.2.1.0. Before that you have to run the 'services' in your shell somehow or daemonize them yourself.

Consequently, you can just kill or Ctrl-C the cmd line Rest and Mgt. UI 'services'. I never had any issues afterwards doing that.

HCP-1.2.1.0 release will install Rest and Mgt. UI as proper OS level services for you ...

Hi @msumbul, you can do this using the commands:

service metron-management-ui stop
service metron-rest stop

Likewise you can use start and status commands as well.

This is not possible since Rest and Mgt. UI are both not installed as OS level services before HCP1.2.1.0.

@Jasper - Yes, you are right. I stand corrected.

Hi @msumbul, @asubramanian,

I had the same question and when you suggested doesn't work since both processes are not registered as services.

since they are launched via nohup start_.....

here what I get when I try it:

$ service metron-rest stop

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl stop metron-rest.service

Failed to stop metron-rest.service: Unit metron-rest.service not loaded.

$ service metron-rest start

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start metron-rest.service

Failed to start metron-rest.service: Unit not found.

Any suggestions?
