I know it's not recommended to change the default 5Gb MAX_FILE_SIZE , but doing some experiments and need to change the MAX_FILE_SIZE to 10Gb, do I need to restart some swift services for the the new changes to take effect?

It depends on the file and where you edit it. If you are editing the swift-proxy.conf file then you can restart swift-proxy to load the configuration changes. Swift-proxy is probably going to be the service you need to restart.

Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it. But I am not editing the swift-proxy.conf, instead I am editing the swift.conf file which swift service to restart for the new value to take effect?

Unless there is a new service that was added you should still be able to restart swift-proxy. See which services you have in /etc/init.d/ that have "swift" in them.
