Data Collector Manual Startup
Follow these steps, for the relevant operating system, to manually start the Data Collector service:
On Windows
The installer configures the Data Collector process as a Service.
To view the Data Collector Status:
1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel
2. Click Administrative Tools.
3. Click Services.
The Microsoft Services Dialog is displayed. It should include entries for “Aptare Agent”. Start this service if it is not running.
On Linux
The installer automatically copies the Data Collector “start” and “stop” scripts to the appropriate directory, based on the vendor operating system.
To start the data collector (agent), use the following command for the respective platforms:
/etc/init.d/aptare_agent start
/etc/aptare_agent start
/sbin/init.d/aptare_agent start
