Manage accelerators

In Cloud Data Fusion environments running in version 6.3 and above, you can use add-ons, called accelerators, that incorporate special features in your pipeline jobs. For example, you can add Replication to existing jobs.

You can add accelerators to new and existing instances.

Before you begin

Your instance needs to run in a Cloud Data Fusion environment version 6.3 or above. To upgrade, see Upgrading instances and pipelines.

Add an accelerator to a new instance

To add an accelerator to a new instance, see Creating a Cloud Data Fusion instance.

Manage accelerators in an existing instance

You can add, disable, or remove an accelerator in an instance.

  1. In the Google Cloud Console, open the Instances page.

    Open the Instances page

  2. Click the desired Instance name.

    The Instance details page opens.

  3. In the Accelerators section, you can add, disable, or remove accelerators.

Disable or remove accelerators

  • An accelerator must be disabled before it can be removed.
  • If you disable an accelerator, all services and pipelines associated with the accelerator are stopped. The schedules are ignored. The accelerator no longer appears in your Cloud Data Fusion environment. You can enable it again, if needed, and the schedules will resume. All data related to the accelerator is retained.
  • If you remove an accelerator from your instance, all services and pipelines associated with the accelerator are deleted. They cannot be recovered. If a pipeline runs on a schedule or trigger, the run fails.
