You can use the following commands to stop/restart ActiveGate.
You'll need root privileges to execute these commands.
service dynatracegateway start|stop|forcestop
dynatracegateway is the
init.d script for ActiveGate. The difference between
forcestop is that the
stop command instructs the process to start its shutdown routine, while
forcestop forces the process shutdown.
You can alternatively use the following command
service dynatracegateway status
to query the current status of an ActiveGate.
On Windows, stopping/starting the ActiveGate service can be done using the Windows Task Manager, on the Services tab. Specifically for stopping and starting the service, you can use the following commands:
net stop|start "Dynatrace Gateway"
If you want to start ActiveGate in a secured way using HTTPS, you have to set the
port-ssl property in
custom.properties, while if you want to start ActiveGate using HTTP, you have to set the
port property in
custom.properties. Note that the secure way is the default and recommended one. However, you might want to choose this option for performance reasons, if you have, for example, a load balancer installed in front of the Cluster ActiveGate that terminates incoming SSL connections from outside your premises (see the third deployment scenario).
