Stopping the TREX Servers

  1. Display the window in which you started the TREX server.
  2. Use CTRL + C or close the window.

Certain processing steps, for example, writing an index, cannot be interrupted. Such steps are completed before the TREX servers are stopped. This process can take a while to complete.

With large indexes, it can take up to a few hours to stop the TREX servers if lots of documents are currently being indexed.


Do not stop the TREX server using kill - 9, as this can lead to data loss. Affected indexes can be irreparably damaged.
