1   Performing Debugging Tasks

Process operations commands provide instruction to the Process Manager (PM).


 Caution! 
Risk of system crash. If more than one process has been stopped, you must restart each process individually, monitoring the SmartEdge router and waiting for it to stabilize before trying to restart the stopped process. Contact technical support before stopping and restarting multiple processes.

 Caution! 
Risk of data loss. The process stop command causes the specified process to terminate and the services provided by the process to become unavailable until the process is restarted using the process start command. To reduce the risk, do not stop a process unless you intend to restart the process immediately.

To monitor, administer, or troubleshoot general system processes, perform the appropriate task listed in Table 1. Enter show commands in any mode; enter all other commands in exec mode.
