Controlling Deveo

As described in the Architecture section, Deveo is composed of popular open-source technologies. Deveo runs and monitors a number of services, which are responsible for executing user requests, scheduling, and running background operations.

Deveo comes with the deveo-ctl tool, which helps manage Deveo services and configuration, and aids in performing administrative tasks. This is the same tool used during the Deveo installation and upgrades.
