Restarting DCS Instances

On the DCS console, you can restart one or multiple DCS instances at a time.


  • After a single-node DCS instance is restarted, data will be deleted from the instance.

  • While a DCS instance is restarting, it cannot be read from or written to.

  • An attempt to restart a DCS instance while it is being backed up may result in a failure.

  • Restarting a DCS instance will disconnect the original client. You are advised to configure automatic reconnection in your application.


The DCS instances you want to restart are in the Running or Faulty state.


  1. Log in to the DCS console.

  2. Click image1 in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Cache Manager.

  4. On the Cache Manager page, select one or more DCS instances you want to restart.

  5. Click Restart above the DCS instance list.

  6. In the displayed dialog box, click Yes.

    It takes 10 seconds to 30 minutes to restart DCS instances. After DCS instances are restarted, their status changes to Running.


    • To restart a single instance, you can also click Restart in the same row as the instance.

    • The time required for restarting a DCS instance depends on the cache size of the instance.
