+\fBgnunet\-arm\fP can be used to start or stop GNUnet services, including the ARM service itself. The ARM service is a supervisor for GNUnet's service processes. ARM starts services on-demand or as configured and re-starts them if they crash.

+Stop the specified SERVICE if it is running. While this will kill the service right now, the service may be restarted immediately if other services depend on it (service is then started 'on-demand'). If the service used to be a 'default' service, its default-service status will be revoked. If the service was not a default service, it will just be (temporarily) stopped, but could be re-started on-demand at any time.
