Controlling the infrastructure
The Lens platform is reliant on multiple pieces of infrastructure to operate correctly. Customer workloads may also require infrastructure to work correctly. Infrastructure instances can generally be described as instances that provide supporting services for Lens users. For example, to connect to a workstation a connection manager needs to be running.
For this reason, the infrastructure must be running before any workstations can be started. Stopping the infrastructure will also automatically shut down all workstations.
Generally, the infrastructure is scheduled to startup and shut down via the Infrastructure Availability Manager. Sometimes you may wish to control the infrastructure manually though. This article will explain how to do this.
