To exit the manager use either SIGTERM or the "c pq" command of constest. The UV control just exits the process without exiting the childs. Abnormal process abortion will NOT exit the childs.

There are two modes: GUI-mode which starts a GUI programm which inserts the processes to launch.

ZD-mode (Zentrale Dienste) without GUI which is used to launch a fixed set of service-processes of the control system.
