Starting and Stopping the Stat Central Agent

The Stat Central Agent is responsible for automating necessary but time-consuming work, such as generating and printing reports, sending email messages, archiving objects, and maintaining specific database parameters.

The Stat Central Agent is designed to run behind-the-scenes with minimal supervision on the part of system administrators. However, you can manually start and stop the Stat Central Agent when circumstances demand it. The procedure for stopping and starting Stat Central Agents differs depending on whether you installed the Stat Central Agent on the Stat-provided standalone platform or on WebLogic.

Standalone Platform

You can run the Stat Central Agent on either a Windows or a Unix platform. If configured properly, the Stat Central Agent can also be run as a Windows Service. For information, see Stat Install Notes.

Starting the Stat Central Agent

To start the Stat Central Agent on either a Windows or a Unix platform., do one of the following:

The server log displays the lines, “Stat Central Agent Web Component is started” and “Stat Central Agent is started” when the startup process for Stat Web and the Stat Central Agent have completed successfully.

Optionally, you can run the Stat Central Agent as a Windows service using the wrapper that is provided with Stat. This is done using the service.bat shell command located in the STAT_HOME/bin/service folder. For information on starting and stopping the Stat Central Agent as a Windows service, see Stat Install Notes.

Stopping the Stat Central Agent

To stop the Stat Central Agent on either a Windows or a Unix platform, do one of the following:

You can also create a desktop shortcut which sends the appropriate command-line shut down argument to the Stat Central Agent.

If you have modified your port offset from the default value of zero due to conflicts with other systems, etc., then you must supply the modified port information to the shutdown command so that it can find the server to shut it down.

For example, if you modified the port offset to one, you need to edit %STAT_HOME%\app\bin\shutdown.bat and modify it as below:

For Unix installations, you need to edit $STAT_HOME/app/bin/shutdown.sh and modify it as below.

Also, if you running more than one Stat Central Agent on the same host machine, you must specify the port offset. In this case, you must also specify the port number when executing the shutdown command. The port numbers for a port offset of one is 9991 and for a port offset of 100 is 9990+100=10090. Again, these numbers may be modified if they conflict with other applications.
