This topic describes how to restart one or more instances in the Elastic Compute Service (ECS) console.
The instances that you want to restart are in the Running state.
You may need to restart ECS instances, usually for maintenance purposes, such as to apply system updates or to save and apply configurations.
The restart operation stops the instance for a short period of time and may interrupt services that are running on the instance. We recommend that you restart instances during off-peak hours.
Log on to the ECS console.
In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
In the upper-left corner of the top navigation bar, select a region.
Restart one or more instances based on your business requirements.
To restart a single instance, find the instance and choosein the Actions column.
To restart multiple instances, select one or more instances and clickin the lower part of this page.
In the Restart Instance dialog box, set Restart Mode and click OK.
