Run/Stop a Process

You can start a Process manually by clicking on the green arrow icon "Start", or by right-clicking on the Process and choosing Run Process. The Process you want to start must be highlighted. If no Process is highlighted, the Start "startdebuggingbutton.png" and Stop "stopbutton.png" options are not available.

Upon selecting a process to run, you get a pop-up window "Available Execution Targets" that will prompt you to select the Pool(s) or Robot(s) to run the Process on:

Select the Execution Target on which the Process will run on and press "OK". You can stop a running Process by clicking on the Stop Icon in the Processes tab, or by right-clicking on the Process and choosing Stop Process.

You can also stop one instance of a running Process by clicking on the "Stop Processes" link found on the Notification Popup Window, although this will close only that instance of the Process. Bare in mind that only the Robot that the process is running on can do this. So in case that you are starting a Process from the Control Desk, then you are only able stop it from the Stop button.

Details on how to deploy a Process to a Pool (which includes a number of Sidebots and/or Solobots) you can find on the "Deploy a Process to a Sidebot" topic.
