Definition Edit

A warm restart (also called warm start) is the restarting of computing equipment, after a sudden shutdown, that allows reuse of previously retained initialized input data, retained programs, and retained output queues.[1]

Overview Edit

A warm restart may be needed after a program failure. A warm start or restart cannot occur if initial data, programs, and files are not retained after closedown.[2]
