Starting, Stopping, Restarting

If you have sudo rights on the target machines, then that's as simple as logging onto each of the targets and issuing the respective commands:

$ sudo service <service-name> start
$ sudo service <service-name> stop
$ sudo service <service-name> restart



The service's logs are stored locally in /srv/log/<service-name>/main.log. To take a look, simply tail it:

$ tail -f /srv/log/<service-name>/main.log

Since the log entries are JSON-formatted, you may want to see them in a more presentable form. Use bunyan for that:

$ tail -f /srv/log/<service-name>/main.log | /srv/deployment/<service-name>/deploy/node_modules/.bin/bunyan
