The Windows operating system includes a graphical service controller that displays the server status, and offers point-and-click server control. The registered name of the service that controls:
• a PEM server host on PostgreSQL is postgresql-x
• a PEM server host on Advanced Server is edb-as-x, or ppas-9.x
• a PEM agent is Postgres Enterprise Manager - pemAgentWhere x indicates the server version number.Navigate through the Windows Control Panel to open the Services utility. When the utility opens, use the scroll bar to browse the list of services (see Figure 6.1).Use the Stop the service option to stop a service. Any user (or client application) connected to the server will be abruptly disconnected if you stop the service.Use the Pause the service option to instruct Postgres to reload a service's configuration parameters. The Pause the service option is an effective way to reset parameters without disrupting user sessions for many of the configuration parameters.Use the Start the service option to start a service.
