How to Restart OATS Services

This article is one of the Oracle Application Test Suite (OATS)[1] series published on Xml and More, which includes the following:
In this article, we will show how to restart OATS services on the Linux system. The Linux system referenced here is Oracle Linux:[2]

$ cat /etc/*-release

Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Carthage)
Oracle Linux Server release 5.8
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)

/sbin/service


Red Hat (i.e., RHEL 5) includes the service utility to help you manage your start up scripts and save you a lot of typing. This is handy when you're managing the already existing services (e.g., OATS services). /sbin/service is just a shell script (see Appendix) that comes as part of Red Hat's initscripts package.[4]


OATS Services


There are three OATS services running on Linux.[5] To restart them, you use the following commands:

# /sbin/service OracleATSAgent [start|stop]
# /sbin/service OracleATSServer [start|stop]
# /sbin/service OracleATSHelper [start|stop]

There is also a command option (i.e., "status") that allows you to check their current status:

#/sbin/service OracleATSHelper status
OATS Helper Service is running

Note that you need to be the superuser to run the above commands. Also, if you install OATS database on the same server, you need to start your DB first before you restart OATS services.
