Depending on how you installed and deployed the Network Agent, there may be more than one method to administer the Network Agent. AppDynamics provides both GUI and command-line tool for common operations, such as starting and stopping Network Agents and their services. See Managing Network Agents in the Controller.
This page describes how to administer the Network Agent using command-line tools for the Network Agent ZIP. You can manage the Network Agent using these commands:

You can start these scripts from Windows Explorer or from the command line. If you run the scripts from the command line, the
stop scripts have a
-quiet option. The
-quiet option runs the scripts without prompts, messages, or dialogs.
