Stop Elastic Agentedit

To stop Elastic Agent and its related executables, stop the Elastic Agent process. Use the commands that work for your system.

The DEB package includes a service unit for Linux systems with systemd. On these systems, you can manage Elastic Agent by using the usual systemd commands.

Use systemctl to stop the agent:

systemctl stop elastic-agent

Otherwise, use:

sudo service elastic-agent stop

Elastic Agent will restart automatically if the system is rebooted.
