Table 2. Application status
Started Application is running.
Partial start Application is in the process of changing from a Stopped state to a Started state. Application is starting to run but is not fully running yet. Or, it cannot fully start because a server mapped to one or more application modules is stopped.
Stopped Application is not running.
Partial stop Application is in the process of changing from a Started state to a Stopped state. Application has not stopped running yet.
Unknown Status cannot be determined.
On single-server installations, an application with an unknown status might, in fact, be running but have an unknown status because the server running the admin console cannot communicate with the server running the application.
Pending Status is temporarily unknown pending an event that a user did not initiate, such as pending an asynchronous call.
Not applicable Application does not provide information as to whether it is running.
The status of an application on a Web server is always Unknown.
