StifleR Server


Under certain circumstances the StifleR Server Service may not release memory in a timely fashion which may cause resource issues.


Several – all being worked on.


We recommend that the StifleR Service be recycled from time to time as necessary. Here’s a handy PS script to help with this:

$SvcName = "StifleRServer"

$s = Get-Service $SvcName -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

#Stop StifleR (Only if installed)

If ($s){

Stop-Service $s -Force


#if for some reason the service didn't stop correctly - force it.

If (!$?) {get-process stifler.service -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | stop-process -Force}

Start-Sleep -s 5

Start-Service $SvcName
