# TiDB Ansible Common Operations

This guide describes the common operations when you administer a TiDB cluster using TiDB Ansible.

$ansible-playbook start.yml  This operation starts all the components in the entire TiDB cluster in order, which include PD, TiDB, TiKV, and the monitoring components. ## Stop a cluster $ ansible-playbook stop.yml


This operation stops all the components in the entire TiDB cluster in order, which include PD, TiDB, TiKV, and the monitoring components.

$ansible-playbook unsafe_cleanup_data.yml  This operation stops the TiDB, Pump, TiKV and PD services, and cleans up the data directory of Pump, TiKV and PD. ## Destroy a cluster $ ansible-playbook unsafe_cleanup.yml


This operation stops the cluster and cleans up the data directory.

Note:

If the deployment directory is a mount point, an error will be reported, but implementation results remain unaffected, so you can ignore it.
