How to start and stop AppMon services or daemons

In the AppMon installation directory, run:
dtserver.exe -service start or
dtserver.exe -service stop.

Alternatively, you can use:

sc start "dynaTrace Server 7.2" and
sc stop "dynaTrace Server 7.2"

The Dynatrace folder in the Windows start menu has shortcuts for all services installed and running locally.

In the Windows Services Control Panel, start / stop / restart / change Startup Type for dynaTrace <service> <version>.

Check if an AppMon Service is running

Check the Services tab of the Task Manager.

REST interface

You can user Server management REST interface to stop or restart the server. See Server management (REST) to learn how.
