A full Presence installation can consist of several processes.

Services

Firstly there are 2 services.

An RPC (Remote Program Call) Service, which is used to enable Presence installations running on different machines to communicate with each other.

All machines that are running a Presence Server should be running the RPC service as this lets the Heartbeat talk to the Presence Server.

The RPC service runs the prpc.exe.

The Heartbeat Service controls the main Presence apps and should be running on the same machine as which the Presence database is installed. Even in a multi server environment there should be only one Heartbeat Service running. This controls the Database Server the Presence Servers and the httpservers. Starting the Heartbeatclient

The Heartbeat Service Runs the hbserver.exe

Processes

You can tell which Presence processes are running through the Task Manager.

If you wish to kill a process be sure to right click and select 'End Process Tree' as this will kill the exe and the associated java.exe process.
