Service Manager, seen in Figure 8.7a, provides a graphical utility for managing PC-BSD® services.

To access this utility, go to Control PanelService Manager or open an xterm then type pc-su pc-servicemanager.
Figure 8.7a: Managing Services Using Service Manager
You will be prompted to input your password.

By default, services will be listed alphabetically. You can reorder the services by clicking on the "Service Name", "Running", or "Enabled" header.

Service Manager is a graphical front-end to the rc scripts located in /etc/rc.d.

If you do not know what a service does, do not change its settings in Service Manager. If you would like to learn more about a service, try seeing if there is a man page for it. For example, type man apm or man bootparamd. If a man page does not exist, try seeing what man pages are associated with that keyword. For example:

apropos accounting

ac(8) - connect time accounting acct(2) - enable or disable process accounting acct(5) - execution accounting file accton(8) - enable/disable system accounting ipfw(4) - IP packet filter and traffic accounting pac(8) - printer/plotter accounting information pam_lastlog(8) - login accounting PAM module

sa(8) - print system accounting statistics
