how to remove the bigd daemon from all run levels

i am having issues getting the right syntax to remove the bigd daemon from all my run levels. in my search for the answer I came across chkconfig I think I need it in my syntax but im not sure. and if it is needed i am running centos inside of a vmware virtual machine. also for any one who knows a lot about the bigd daemon if you could explain to me what the bigd daemon is and what it does in linux I would very much appreciate it I am to new to linux and i dont really know much about it.

chkconfig has a man page. You can read it with the command
man chkconfig
According to the man page, you should be able to disable the daemon (if it is being managed with chkconfig) with the command:
chkconfig bigd off
As for what bigd actually is, I don't know. I suggest reading the /etc/init.d/bigd script to see what is actually being run, and then perhaps see if there is a man page for it.
