I do not know the service’s name, but would like to stop the service by checking its status.
For example, if I want to check if the PostgreSQL service is running or not, but I don’t know the service’s name, then how could I check its status?
I know the command to check the status if the service name is known.
I don’t have an Ubuntu box, but on Red Hat Linux you can see all running services by running the following command:
On the list the
+ indicates the service is running,
- indicates service is not running,
? indicates the service state cannot be determined.
