Sumo Logic Collectors start automatically at system startup. The Sumo Logic Collector installation directory comes with a set of scripts used to start, stop, and check the status of the Collector process (Linux/Unix) and service (Windows).
Manually restarting or stopping a Sumo Logic Collector requires root (Mac and Linux) or Administrator (Windows) privileges.
Linux/Unix and Mac
To start, stop, or check the status of the Collector, run one of the following commands from the Collector installation directory.
sudo ./collector start
sudo ./collector stop
sudo ./collector status
sudo ./collector restart
Use these commands to install, start, or stop the Collector as a service, respectively.
You can start and stop the Collector with a Windows NET.EXE command since the Collector runs as a Windows service.
net start sumo-collector
net stop sumo-collector
