Restart App Service Plan (all Web Apps in a plan), something similar to iisreset, from within the portal
It would be great to have a restart button, similar to the restart button in a Web App, but on the App Service Plan level to restart all Web Apps in a plan. something similar to iisreset.
What issue are you trying to solve? What use case would this be used for?
It seems to me that placing a restart option on the plan level might do more harm than good, by resetting the memory on all the apps under the plan. Depending on your scenario, auto-heal would be a great solution to solve individual machine issues. See a video by my colleagues here for more details: https://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Windows-Azure-Web-Sites-Tutorials/Auto-Healing-an-Azure-App-Service
Placing this idea under review for now until I understand what’s at the base of the request here.
I don't understand how autho heal will address the issue. I have the problem of the azure app services going crazy and running 100% CPU even though all apps are stopped. So having auto heal restart an app won't solve the problem that azure app service is 100% CPU will all apps are stopped. Need a way to force app service to stop and restart, not just the app.
Thanks for your prompt reply. I am aware of auto-heal and it is being used. It is a great feature when something goes wrong with one of the Web Apps.
On the other hand, for maintenance reasons (say after publishing a new version of the web apps), we need to recycle all application pools and clear IIS cache. I think it would a great addition to the portal for application maintenance.
