Server status

Figure 13: Server status started and stopped

The user can start the actim server by simply clicking on the "Start" button. If the server is started successfully, the bulb next to the server lights up. This also applies to the polling button. As soon as the server is on, the user can switch the polling service on and off. The polling service does not need to be started manually. As soon as the event is launched, the server will automatically detect whether the polling service has been started. If not, the server will initiate the polling by itself.

In the current release, it does not support to switch off polling. The only way is to restart the server. If any configuration is modified and saved during the server is running, the user must restart the server to take effect of the new configuration.
