Controlling a Server

If you provided a Service ID on the Advanced tab of the Server property dialogue, the PEM server can control the database service process.

  • If the PEM client is running on a Windows machine, it can control the postmaster service if you have sufficient access rights. In case of a remote server, the service name must be prepended by the machine name (e.g. PSE1pgsql-8.0).
  • If the PEM client is running on a Unix machine, it can control processes running on the local machine if you have sufficient access rights. When executing service control functions, PEM will append status/start/stop keywords to the service name provided.
