Burp Suite Enterprise Edition will install the following services on your machine:

  • burpsuiteenterpriseedition_agent.service
  • burpsuiteenterpriseedition_enterpriseserver.service
  • burpsuiteenterpriseedition_webserver.service
  • burpsuiteenterpriseedition_db.service
    Note that this final service is only installed if you're using the bundled database rather than your own external one.

Managing Burp Suite Enterprise Edition services

You may occasionally want to check whether these services are running or manually stop and restart them. For example, if you decide to migrate from the bundled database to an external one, you will need to stop some of the services before migrating your data. This process differs slightly depending on your operating system.
