By default Urchin 6 is installed at /usr/local/urchin directory. You can change directory by typing the following command:
# cd /usr/local/urchin
Use urchinctl to control Urchin web server / scheduler
You will find urchinctl inside bin directory. It is used to control Urchin web server listing on TCP port 9999.
To start the Urchin webserver, enter:
# /usr/local/urchin/bin/urchinctl start
To restart the Urchin webserver, enter:
# /usr/local/urchin/bin/urchinctl restart
Above command is useful if you change Urchin port or other settings.
To view the Urchin webserver and scheduler status , enter:
# /usr/local/urchin/bin/urchinctl status
Urchin webserver is running Urchin MASTER scheduler is running Urchin SLAVE scheduler is running
To stop the Urchin webserver, enter:
# /usr/local/urchin/bin/urchinctl stop
Automatically start / stop Urchin after RHEL reboot
You need to copy /usr/local/urchin/util/urchin_daemons file to /etc/init.d/ directory:
# cp /usr/local/urchin/util/urchin_daemons /etc/init.d/urchin
# chmod +x /etc/init.d/urchin
Use chkconfig tool, which provides a simple command-line tool for maintaining the /etc/rc[0-6].d directory hierarchy by relieving system administrators of the task of directly manipulating the numerous symbolic links in those directories.
# chkconfig urchin on
Now you can start, stop or restart Urchin services automatically.
