Manage Accelerators

When an accelerator is created,  you can spread the VS content faster by enabling acceleration for this VS.

Accelerator, as a type of virtual server, has its own options. You can find the accelerator on Control Panel's Accelerators menu. Click the label of the accelerator to view its details. You can manage the accelerator using the Tools button and Overview/Networking/Storage tabs.

Accelerator Options



Rebuild/Build Accelerator


 


If you haven't checked the Build Accelerator option during the accelerator creation process, you will have to do this manually after the accelerator has been created. Building an accelerator is the process of allocating physical resources to that accelerator.

To build an accelerator manually or rebuild the accelerator on the same  template:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you're interested in.
  3. On the screen that appears, click the Tools button and then click Rebuild Accelerator.

  4. Move the Start Accelerator after rebuild slider to the right if you want to have your accelerator started automatically after it is built.
  5. Click the Rebuild Accelerator button to finish.

     

Edit Accelerator


 



To edit accelerator's resources:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you want to resize, to show its details screen.
  3. Click the Tools button and select the Edit Accelerator link. Change the following parameters:
    • Label - the name of accelerator
    • RAM - the amount of accelerator's RAM
    • CPU Cores - the amount of accelerator's CPU cores
  4. Click Save.

Migrate Accelerator


 


To  migrate an accelerator:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you want to migrate.
  3. Click the Tools button and press the Migrate Accelerator link.
  4. In the window that appears, choose the target Compute resource from the drop-down menu.
  5. Click the Start Migration button.

 

Delete Accelerator


 


To remove the accelerator from the cloud:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Accelerators menu.
  2. Click the label of the accelerator you want to delete.
  3. On the accelerator's screen, click the Tools button, then select Delete Accelerator.
  4. Click Destroy.

If there are accelerated virtual servers in the cloud, and there're some prices set for the acceleration, these VSs will be still billed for acceleration even if you delete the accelerator.
