I am new to quantum and i wanted to know how do i restart the quantum server in devstack single node installation.

Since restart will first require the server to be stopped i looked in to devstack/lib/quantum file. In this there is a function to stop the quantum server called stop_quantum().

Then to start there is a function in the same file called startquantumserviceandcheck().

basically, I am making some modifications to the extensions and i need to restart the server in this regard. This is the way i have come up with if there is a better alternative please let me know.

When using devstack, most processes are run in a screen window. I think what you want is to restart the Quantum service in there.

  • $ screen -r
  • Ctrl-a + " to list the different services.
  • Navigate to q-svc (all services starting with q- are related to quantum) and press Enter
  • Ctrl-C, then arrow up and rerun the last command

Hope this helps.
