The BIG-IP system includes a number of services that you can start, stop, or restart using the BIG-IP Configuration utility. This ability to start or stop services from within the BIG-IP Configuration utility is useful when you want to run only those services that you need to successfully manage network traffic.
The BIG-IP 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 BIG-IP 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 BIG-IP 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.
