Start Stop Services

Starting and Stopping Funnelback services.


This outlines how to start, stop and restart Funnelback services such as the Jetty web server, Redis and daemon service.

Note that each service is independent, and restarts may occur in any order. Running collection update operations, however, may update values in the redis service, so restarting redis should be avoided while updates are in progress.


On Linux Funnelback uses init.d for services. The init.d scripts must be run as root and take a single argument of start, stop or restart.

Restart Jetty web server:

/etc/init.d/funnelback-jetty-webserver restart

Restart Redis:

/etc/init.d/funnelback-redis restart

Restart Daemon service:

/etc/init.d/funnelback-daemon restart


On Windows Funnelback services can be controlled running the Services snap-in found under Administrative Tools (typically searching for "services" in windows search will find services tool). Services can only be controlled by an Administrator. A service can be started, stopped or restarted by right clicking on the service and clicking the appropriate option. The following is a list of Funnelback services.

  • funnelback-jetty-webserver: Jetty web server.
  • funnelback-redis: Redis.
  • funnelback-daemon: Daemon Services.
