Engine Restart Script


The engine restart script allows you to restart an Appian engine safely while the site is running in a High Availability configuration. This allows you to free memory that has been reserved but is not currently used by the engine.

It is recommended that you run this script on the server hosting the primary engine in a High Availability configuration (use the Status Script to determine the primary engine). Restarting the primary engine frees up the most memory, but it can be used on replicas as well, to lesser effect. This script only runs on one engine at a time.
