Starting, Restarting and Stopping the Sguil Server
To manage the central Sguil server processes, change to the scripts subdirectory of the InstantNSM distribution and run instantnsm_install.pl as root:
# cd ~/instantnsm/scripts # ./instantnsm_install.pl
The installation script should now show you the main menu:
InstantNSM Configuration Utility v0.7.0 David J. Bianco <email@example.com> Select software to configure on this system: 1) Configure sguil server 2) Configure sguil sensor 3) List installed sensors 4) Remove a sensor 5) Start/Restart a sensor 6) Stop a sensor 7) Sensor status 8) Start/Restart the server 9) Stop the server 10) Server status 99) Exit Configuration Script >
Since the server typically starts itself at boot time, you'll probably only restart it if you've intentionally stopped the server or if part of it has died. To start a server or to restart a running server, selection option #8 (Start/Restart the server).
If you want to stop the server, you can select option #9 (Stop the server).
In either case, the script will then do as you have asked. If you are starting or restarting the server, it may take a few minutes for all sensors to reconnect, but they should do so automatically.
It might also be a good idea to check the server status, just to make sure everything worked as you intended.
