Stopping the wire listener

You can stop the wire listener by terminating the java process, or for the MongoDB listener by using the stop command.

About this task

You must stop the wire listener before you modify any configuration settings.

You can stop the wire listener at any time by terminating the java process that is running the wire listener.

If you are running a listener of type MongoDB, you can also stop the wire listener by running the stop command with the configuration file specified. This stop command only works if authentication.enable=true or authentication.localhost.bypass.enable=true.

To run the stop command for a MongoDB listener.
java -jar $INFORMIXDIR/bin/jsonListener.jar -config
 $INFORMIXDIR/etc/ -stop
Important: You must specify the -config argument to stop the wire listener from the command line.
