The BIG-IP system includes a number of services that you can start, stop, or restart using the Configuration utility. This ability to start or stop services from within the Configuration utility is useful when you want to run only those services that you need to successfully manage network traffic.
The Configuration utility screen for managing services lists the name of each service and its current status. At a minimum, the services that you can stop or start with the Configuration utility are:
If you have other BIG-IP product modules running on the BIG-IP system, such as Global Traffic Manager, you might see other services listed on the Services screen.
When you view the list of services available on the BIG-IP system, you can also view current status. In the Configuration utility, you can see this status in the History column. Examples of status for a service are: Running for 6 days, Running, and down, Not provisioned.
