This topic describes how to restart an instance by using the ECS console.
- Only instances in the Running state can be restarted.
- Restarting an instance will stop the instance. As a result, services provided by the instance are disrupted.
- Find the target instance, and then choose Actions column.
To restart multiple instances, select all required instances and then click Restart at the bottom of the instance list.
- In the displayed Restart Instance dialog box, select a Restart Mode, and then click OK.
You can also call the RebootInstance API action to complete this task.
