Stopping DCS Instances


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

  • After a DCS instance is stopped, it can no longer be read from or written to. If it is a single-node instance, data will also be deleted from it when it is stopped.
  • An attempt to stop a DCS instance while it is being backed up may result in a failure.


The DCS instances you want to stop are in the Running state.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click  in the upper left corner of the management console and select a region and a project.
  3. Click Service List, and choose Database > Distributed Cache Service to launch the DCS console.
  4. In the navigation pane, choose Cache Manager.
  5. Choose instances to stop.

    • To stop a single instance, click Stop in the same row as the instance.
    • To stop multiple instances, select the instances to stop and click Stop above the instance list.

  6. In the Stop dialog box, click OK to confirm that you want to stop the instances.

    It takes 1 to 30 minutes to stop DCS instances. After DCS instances are stopped, their status changes from Running to Stopped.
