FPGA as a Service:Restart one or more instances

Last Updated:Jul 11, 2023

From a resource management standpoint, FPGA-accelerated instances are considered as Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances and are managed in the same way you manage other ECS instances. This topic describes how to restart one or more instances in the ECS console.


Only instances in the Running state can be restarted.

Background information

Restarting an instance will stop the instance. As a result, services provided by the instance are disrupted.


  1. Log on to the ECS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Instances & Images > Instances.
  3. Select the target region.
  4. Find the target instances.
    • To restart an instance, choose More > Instance Status > Restart in the Actions column.
    • To restart multiple instances, select all required instances and then click Restart at the bottom of the instance list.
  5. In the displayed Restart Instance dialog box, select a Restart Mode, and then click OK.
