'Hot' admin tasks are defined as tasks that take effect immediately and do not require the server to restart. 'Cold' admin tasks are defined as tasks that require one or more instances of the server to restart to reflect the changes.
In a clustered deployment, 'cold' tasks will require one or more hosts in the cluster to restart their instance of MarkLogic in order to reflect the changes. In an single-server deployments, 'cold' tasks will cause MarkLogic to restart in order to reflect the changes.
The tables below show the 'hot' or 'cold' status for adding objects, changing configuration parameters, and dropping objects for the following object types:
The following group parameters are hot:
> group name
> system log level
> file log level
> rotate log files
> keep log files
The following group parameters are cold for the hosts in the group:
> list cache size
> compressed tree cache size
> expanded tree cache size
Adding and dropping hosts from groups is cold for that host.
