Question:
I'm new to CA Access Gateway, and I cannot find in the documentation how exactly I should start and stop the services in Linux. 
Environment:
Access Gateway (SPS) R12.52 SP1 on RHEL
Answer:
In order to start or stop the services you need to use the sps-ctl script:

# ./sps-ctl
usage:  ./sps-ctl (start|startssl|stop|restart|graceful)

start       - start CA Access Gateway Proxy and the CA Access Gateway Engine
startssl    - start CA Access Gateway Proxy with SSL enabled and the CA Access Gateway Engine
stop        - stop CA Access Gateway Proxy and the CA Access Gateway Engine
restart     - restart CA Access Gateway Proxy by sending a SIGHUP or start if not running

graceful    - do a graceful restart of CA Access Gateway Proxy by sending a SIGUSR1 or start if not running

Ensure you have sourced the environment variables script before (. ./ca_sps_env.ksh), even if you only need to stop it.
