Stopping a Collector that is Running as a Console App

About this task

To stop a collector running as a console application:


Type s at the command prompt in the DOS window and press Enter.
If you try to stop the collector by closing the DOS window, the collector does not execute a normal shutdown process and does not record the shutdown event in the archive. This may cause incorrect timestamps and unidentified gaps in archived data. It may also produce flat-line traces in sections of chart displays that use any Retrieval Mode other than Raw.
