What is the difference between the stop and restart?

What is the difference between the stop and restart?  I feel that stopping closed all processes, completely erases RAM memory and clears the cache of the processor.  I need to know if 1) this is a correct assumption and 2) which is better for daily maintenance of the system.  Thank you in advance.

Hello Jeremy_1976,

Your support when the judgment is correct. Basically, it stops the process and completely turns off your computer. Reboot, however, temporarily your PC stops, then turn it on again. This happens usually when Windows updates are installed. After installation, the system is restarted (rebooted) so that any update has been successfully installed and works as it should. You can be a little mixed upward the reboot and the hibernation. Reboot is, as I have indicated previously, basically a reboot of your machine. Ultimately, your PC is on again after a reboot. However, hibernation, stores all data currently in memory in a special file, then the PC turns off. When you then turn on your PC, that is, coming out of hibernation, hibernation files is used to restore the status of the PC than when you initially put into hibernation. In other words all the programs you had open before will automatically open and be ready to use hibernation.

Hibernation or sleep for that matter is for short-term use. It is normal in Hibernate, or sleep if you want to be away from your PC for half an hour or so. If you leave more than I suggest you stop completely.

A point to remember about hibernation is that, if you use put into hibernation, you can't, once you get out after hibernation, install programs or updates. You have to stop and restart normally to do.

  • What is a difference between 'Logical processors' and 'logical processors for each host?

    Hi all!

    In the official document VMware "vsphere-51-configuration-maxima" or "vsphere-55-configuration - maximums.pdf" in the section "ESXi host maximum rates------Maximums calculation" exists in the elements:

    "Maximum CPU------logical CPU for each host ' (vSphere 5.1: 160;)   vSphere 5.5: 320)


    "Machine virtual maximums------virtual CPU by host ' (vSphere 5.1: 2048;)    vSphere 5.5: 4096)

    Question: what is the difference between the two?

    And a more complex thing to maximum rates:

    Virtual machines per host: 512

    Number of hosts per cluster: 32

    Therefore, the cluster may be Virtual Machines (maximum): 521 * 32 = 16384

    But in the document, we have only 4000 VMs in maximum.


    Thank you


    I understand your question as difference between 1. logic virtual CPU vs / by the hosts and 2. cluster/host Max County VM.

    Consider the case below;

    2 servers ESXi - 20 mV

    ESXi taken 1-4, 2 cores / socket

    ESXi 2-8 Sockets, 2 cores / socket

    Now here number of CPU logic-(4 x 2) + (8 x 2) = 24

    20 virtual machines - 2 jacks, 2 core / socket

    Virtual CPU count - 20 x (2 * 2) = 80

    Hope your first confusion is clear now.

    And a more complex thing to maximum rates:

    Virtual machines per host: 512

    Number of hosts per cluster: 32

    Therefore, the cluster may be Virtual Machines (maximum): 521 * 32 = 16384

    But in the document, we have only 4000 VMs in maximum.


    This means that even if you have 32 Guest and each host can accommodate 512 VMs each the maximum number of virtual machines per cluster may not exceed 4000. And it does not mean that you can have a maximum of VMS (512 * 32).

It is the same even when you use another defective hard drive. It must be a hardware component on the motherboard. I deleted and all the other components. I disabled designed in bios and Device Manager. What is the difference between secure mode and diagnosis?

  • What is the difference between an application and a widget?

    What is the difference between an application and a widget?

    Widget-based applications

    not always asked of widgets

    Widget is just an application interface to develop android home and have some readily available settings/info/etc.; If you do not need to type an application to access some of the data; but you can type the widget to run the application if necessary and if possible.

    It's like a windows program, you must run it to use it... If they is not a widget.

  • What is the difference between Foglight JavaEE and Foglight JMX monitoring?


    I have a plan to monitor the WebSphere Application Server (32 bit) and (64-bit)

    But I understand not all Foglight for JavaEE and Foglight for JMX.

    Foglight for JavaEE or Foglight for JMX is able to monitor WebSphere?

    What is the difference between Foglight JavaEE and Foglight JMX monitoring?

    Thanks in advance


    Just to add to the excellent answers already posted.

    We have 2 agents which allows you to monitor Java:

    1. a JavaEE agent that runs inside the JAVA virtual machine and the information of both JMX and instrumentation.

    This Agent will give you JMX information like information of JVM (use of the bunch, son etc.), of the Application and server availability information and other information of JMX/PMI (connections pools, pools of ejb, servlets, jsp, JCA and more).

    Java EE & # 039agent also gives you information of the instrumentation - RFA count and response time, exceptional output and timeout information, distribution of queries (App/DB, component technology, server, application failure), object tracking, transaction flow and stransactional between servers and data sources) and ask traces (the ability to see the trees of the RFA at the method level to know where things are slow/stuck).

    2 JMX agent is running outside the JVM but can run on the same computer or on a remote computer, this agent requires access active, JMX. This agent gives you information JVM, availability server/applications, as well as some data as the application server published using JMX (pools of connections, JCA, EJB, servlets, etc.). The JMX agent also gives you the ability to see a list of the mbeans, get the data they expose (javaEE agent gets only a predefined list (same list that is used as a template for the application servers in the JMX agent)).

    Hope this helps

  • What is the difference between. MHT and. HTM?

    Original title: is anyone know about MHT files?

    What is the difference between. MHT and. HTM?

    Hi Sheryl,

    Welcome to the Windows 7 community!

    I understand that you would like to know the difference between file MHT and HTM file. I'm happy to help you.

    MHTML, short for MIME HTML, is a format to archive web page used to combine resources that are usually represented by external links (such as images, Flash animations, audio files, Java applets) as well as the HTML code in a single file. The content of an MHTML file is encoded as if it were an email message to HTML, using the MIME type multipart/related. The first part of the file is normally encoded HTML; subsequent parts are additional resources identified by their URL original and encoded in base64. This format is sometimes referred to as MHT, after the suffix .mht given to these files by default when created by Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer or Opera. MHTML is a proposed standard, distributed in an edition revised in 1999 as RFC 2557.

    HTML Web page that is used by Web browsers; contains the code markup that is stored in a plain text format; used to display and format the text and images in a Web browser.

    HTM files serve the same exact than purpose. HTML files. The extension ".htm" appeared with the use of the Web Microsoft, such as FrontPage, SharePoint Designer and Expression Web development software.

    HTM files are much less common than HTML files.

    It will be useful. For any other corresponding Windows help, do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help you.

  • What is the difference between Unicast RPF and Reverse Path Forwarding?

    I am confused between Unicast RPF and Reverse Path Forwarding function.

    What is the difference between Unicast RPF and Reverse Path Forwarding?

    Because they have all two please check the address of the source of each package before sending it to the destination too?

    Reverse Path Forwarding is used only when the network want to build a tree shared multicast communication and then we must use Unicast RPF after creation of the shared tree?

    The mechanism of the RPF is mainly used to ensure no loop of routing traffic.

    As you probably already read, it does by ensuring that his route to the source address of a packet received is accessible via the same interface that the packet is entered in the. Think of the notion of "root port" in STP. all root ports are similar to the root, sunflower follow the Sun. Therefore, it is naturally a loop prevention mechanism.

    With multicast traffic, it is quite likely to create multiple loops of routing the nature of 'destination' traffic. For this reason, using a mechanism as the RPF to ensure you are on the "road to the root" (to say) to the source originating multicast traffic. Otherwise if you're not then you either receive this traffic route in a loop, or a suboptimal path.

    uRPF works essentially the same way, except that it is done for unicast traffic instead. Now with unicast traffic your flow is from a source and directs to a single destination. Given that, as the fact that you are using a dynamic routing algorithm (which allows to select the path to a destination), you can have loops of your network for unicast traffic flow routing; of course there may be exceptions to pitfalls of configuration route redistribution.

    However RPF when it is applied to traffic unicast can add another advantage, and it's verification IP source. That's why we can use it as a security mechanism to ensure that data are from where it is supposed to come.

    On the limit of the L2, you then have mechanisms such as guard source IP to ensure that the correct host is not usurpation of their IP address.

    By analogy RPF can be used for checking at source for multicast traffic, and it is intrinsically that however, the most important role is so that it can be used to guarantee without loop routing of multicast traffic.

    I hope that helped clear things upwards and not confused you any more with all this.
