How to restart the PDS

The PDS can be restarted in one of two ways: by restarting the PDS applications, or by rebooting the server. Both need to be accessed in the PDS service mode. The PDS will come back online approximately 5-10 minutes following a restart. All alarm histories, graphic trends, and vital signs saved before the restart will be available following the restart.
