UI Portal


Start Instance

Start a specified instance in the cluster. You can start a role instance in the Not Started, Stop Failed, or Startup Failed state to use the role instance.

More > Stop Instance

Stop a specified instance in the cluster. Stop role instances that will no longer be used or are abnormal.

More > Restart Instance

Restart a specified instance in the cluster. Restart an abnormal role instance to recover its functions.

More > Instance Rolling Restart

Restart a specified instance in the cluster without interrupting services. For details about the parameter settings, see Performing a Rolling Restart of a Cluster.

More > Decommission/Recommission

Recommission or decommission a specified instance in the cluster to change the service availability status of the service. For details, see Decommissioning and Recommissioning an Instance.


Only the role DataNode in HDFS, the role NodeManager in Yarn, the role RegionServe in HBase support the recommissioning and decommissioning functions.

Desired instance > More > Synchronize Configuration

If Configuration Status of a role instance is Expired, the role instance is not restarted after its configurations are modified. The new configuration is saved only on FusionInsight Manager. In this case, use this function to deliver the new configuration to the specified instance.

  • After synchronizing a role instance configuration, restart the role instance whose configuration has expired. The role instance is unavailable during restart.
  • After the synchronization is complete, restart the instance for the configuration to take effect.

Desired instance > Instance Configurations

For details, see Managing Instance Configurations.

You can filter instances based on the role they belong to or their running status in this area.

Click Advanced Search to search for specific instances by specifying filter criteria, such as Host Name, Management IP Address, Business IP Address, or Instance Groups.

Role Instance List

The role instance list contains the instances of all roles in the cluster. The list displays the running status, configuration status, hosts, and related IP addresses of each instance.
