How can I restart my SearchStax Cloud deployments?

You can restart your SearchStax Cloud Dedicated demplyments in three ways:

Rolling Restart of Cluster

Premium clients who upload modified JAR files must perform a “rolling restart” to load the new JARs into memory. SearchStax has provided a Restart All Solr Nodes button on the Deployment Details page for this purpose.

Note that this feature is intended for refreshing an otherwise healthy system. If you attempt to do a rolling restart on a broken system, SearchStax may refuse with this message:

This means that a replica or a node is down, and restarting the remaining node(s) could cause a service outage. Contact the SearchStax Support Desk for assistance.

Individual Node Restart

The SearchStax Cloud Dashboard offers links to help you start and stop individual Solr instances. Look on the Deployment Details page (where the HTTP Solr Endpoint is shown).

SearchStax Managed Solr

In some situations, it may not be possible to restart the node from this link. If you encounter any difficulty, contact SearchStax Support and we’ll take care of it.

Restart from API

The SearchStax Cloud Deployment API offers a RESTful API for managing Solr nodes. Please see:
