How do I stop the CopperEgg Collector from being monitored?

Last Updated: September 17, 2013

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:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/revealcloud stop


  • 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:

Note that you can also Remove a server from the Details page of a server.
