Stop and start system processes
Stop system processes to help when troubleshooting issues on a device. If a process or application is causing an issue on a device, you can stop it to asses issues, and restart as needed.
This feature is only available for managed Windows devices with SolarWinds N-central agents installed.
If any open programs are associated with the selected processes that are being stopped, they will close and any unsaved data will be lost. If you end a system process, this may result in an unstable system.
- In the navigation pane, click Views > All Devices and click the Network Devices tab.
- Click the Name of a device.
- Click Tools > Processes.
- Click the check box beside each of the names of the processes to stop.
- Click End.
The process or application stops running. To start the application again, click Start New, and type the name of the application or process that you want to run.
