There are two ways to accomplish this, the first is temporary, and the second is permanent.
Temporarily stopping a collector
- Stopping the collector on Linux
Log into the server and run "ls /etc/init/revealcloud.conf".
If it says "/etc/init/revealcloud.conf", run the following command:
sudo stop revealcloud
If it says "ls: cannot access /etc/init/revealcloud.conf: No such file or directory", run this command:
sudo /etc/init.d/revealcloud stop
Stopping the collector on MacOSX
Log into the system as root, or a user with sudo privileges. Then run this command:
sudo /Library/LaunchDaemons/launchctl stop com.copperegg.revealcloud
- Stopping the collector on FreeBSD
Log into the system as root. Edit /etc/rc.conf and remove the "revealcloud_enable=YES" line. Then run this command:
- Stopping the collector on Windows
Open the "Control Panel", select "Admnistrative Tools", select "Services", select "RevealCloud Collector for Windows", and click "Stop".
Permanently stopping a collector
Navigate to the Servers List page:
In the CopperEgg UI, click on the Servers tab, then click on Servers List in the left navigation panel. You are now on the Servers List page. On this page, each line represents one monitored server.
Click on the Remove link for the server that you want to stop monitoring.
If you also want to remove the binary and scripts, you must follow the uninstall instructions here: https://copperegg.zendesk.com/entries/21737551-how-do-i-uninstall-the-copperegg-collector.
Note that you can also Remove a server from the Details page of a server.
