Services are controlled by the use of Security Onion scripts (so-<noun>-<verb>) which act as wrappers to other lower-level scripts. These scripts are detailed below:

Check status of all services:

sudo so-status

Start all services:

sudo so-start

Stop all services:

sudo so-stop

Restart all services:

sudo so-restart

Server services

Check status of sguild (Sguil server):

sudo so-sguild-status

Start sguild:

sudo so-sguild-start

Stop sguild:

sudo so-sguild-stop

Restart sguild:

sudo so-sguild-restart

Sensor services

Sensor services are controlled with so-sensor-*.

List of controlled services:

ls /usr/sbin/so-sensor-*

The following examples are for Bro, but you could substitute whatever sensor service you're trying to control.

sudo so-bro-restart
