Restarting the Spatial Module

You can use the Spectrum Spatial™ Manager to restart the Spatial Module remote component to clear the cache or pick up new settings without restarting the Spectrum™ Technology Platform.

How to Restart Spatial Module

  1. Launch Spectrum Spatial™ Manager.
  2. Click Settings and then open the Settings sub-menu.
  3. Click Re-start from Re-start Spatial Module. A warning message displays.
    Note: Some requests can fail during restart, so we recommend restarting when there is no traffic.
  4. Click Yes to restart.

Cases where the Spatial Module Restart is Helpful

  1. Spectrum Spatial caches table structures, geometry, and index-related information that does not modify frequently. The data in the tables is mostly static, but may refresh occasionally. When deploying new data, we recommend restarting the Spatial Module to clear the cache. You can update a table’s volatile setting from the Modify Table capability in Spectrum Spatial™ Manager.

    • For file-based tables, like tab or shape files, restart the Spatial Module when the table structure or data has changed.
    • In the case of database tables, restart the Spatial Module only when the structure of the table has been modified.
