Main Operations on Services and Processes

The ability to monitor and control processes and services in your Parallels Virtuozzo Containers system is essential because of the profound influence they have on the operation and performance of your whole system. The more you know about what each process or service is up to, the easier it will be to pinpoint and solve problems when they creep in.
The most common tasks associated with managing services in the Host operating system of the Hardware Node or inside a Container are starting, stopping, and restarting a service. For example, you might need to start a service in order to use certain server-based applications, or you might need to stop or pause a service in order to perform testing or to troubleshoot a problem. All these operations can be performed by means of Parallels Management Console.
As for processes, the main operations you can perform on them are monitoring the processes currently running on the Hardware Node or inside Containers and carrying out some control operations on them. You can complete these tasks using Parallels Management Console or Windows Task Manager.

Managing Services and Processes

In Parallels Virtuozzo Containers-based systems, you can use the following tools to manage (monitor and partially configure) the services and processes present in the Host operating system of the Hardware Node or inside a Container:
  • Parallels Management Console to start, stop, or restart a service or to send different signals to a process.
  • Windows Task Manager to control the processes currently running on the Hardware and inside its Containers.
The following subsections provide detailed information on how you can manage services and processes using these tools.
