Use this page to change the state of the current server. You can also specify particular shutdown settings or view the current status of this server. (Some operations require the Node Manager and the domain-wide administration port.)

Configuration Options

Name Description
Ignore Sessions During Shutdown

Indicates whether a graceful shutdown operation drops all HTTP sessions immediately.

If this is set to false, a graceful shutdown operation waits for HTTP sessions to complete or timeout.

MBean Attribute:

Graceful Shutdown Timeout

Number of seconds a graceful shutdown operation waits before forcing a shut down. A graceful shutdown gives WebLogic Server subsystems time to complete certain application processing currently in progress. If subsystems are unable to complete processing within the number of seconds that you specify here, then the server will force shutdown automatically.

A value of 0 means that the server will wait indefinitely for graceful shutdown to complete.

The graceful shutdown timeout applies only to graceful shutdown operations.

MBean Attribute:

Minimum value: 0

Startup Timeout

Timeout value for server start and resume operations. If the server fails to start in the timeout period, it will force shutdown.

A value of 0 means that the server will wait indefinitely for the operation to complete.

MBean Attribute:

Minimum value: 0

Changes take effect after you redeploy the module or restart the server.

Column Display

You can show fewer or additional data points on this page by expanding Customize this table and modifying the Column Display list. Each data point displays in its own table column.

The following table lists all of the data points that you can display in columns on this page.

Name Description

The server instances in this WebLogic domain.


The WebLogic Server host computer (machine) on which a server instance runs.


The current state of a server instance.

Status of Last Action

Status information related to this task.


Name Description

Moves server instances from the SHUTDOWN state to RUNNING.


Moves server instances from the STANDBY or the ADMIN state to RUNNING.

Suspend servers when work completes

Moves server instances from the RUNNING state to the ADMIN state, allowing work in process to be handled gracefully. While in the SUSPENDING state, Work Managers complete in-flight processing for pending work in application threads.

Forcibly suspend servers

Immediately moves server instances from the RUNNING state to the ADMIN state, without handling work in process gracefully.

Shutdown servers when work completes

Gracefully stops server instances in the domain. New requests are rejected but in-work requests are completed before the server stops.

Forcibly shutdown servers

Immediately stops server instances in the domain. In-work requests are dropped, no new requests are accepted, and the server immediately stops.

Restart SSL

Restarts the SSL listen sockets so that keystore changes take effect.
