Restart CanIt

On occasion the CanIt process my stall or become hung. In these cases it may be necessary to restart CanIt to get it back to a fully functional state.

If this is the case and you feel it necessary to restart try the following from the command line as the root user:

   /etc/init.d/canit-system restart-gracefully

However if the canitd process is truly hung, then restart-gracefully will be unresponsive. In this case terminate the command and use:

   /etc/init.d/canit-system restart

This carries a slight risk of Bayes training not working until the next Bayes update run. However, the slight inaccuracy of Bayes data is highly unlikely to be noticeable in filtering performance.

Note: start-gracefully waits for any busy canitd tasks to finish, so in that sense it's a bit safer.
