In case the software provisioning manager failed during the execution phase, the restart can take quite some time until it gets going again.
To accelerate the restart, I delete the file statistics.xml within the rundirectory of the software provisioning manager:
Doing this, the restart is much faster.
What is the purpose of this file?
Like the name says, the file contains statistic information about each step of the current procedure. At the end of the procedure, a file called INSTANA.XML is created that contains a collection of data about the whole procedure, including OS information, runtime, etc… INSTANA.XML also contains data from the file statistics.xml.
