Last updated: 2022-09-26 17:00:18

1. API Description

Domain name for API request: lighthouse.tencentcloudapi.com.

This API is used to shut down one or more instances.

  • You can only perform this operation on instances whose status is RUNNING.
  • The instance status will become STOPPING when the API is called successfully and will become STOPPED when the instance is successfully shut down.
  • Batch operations are supported. The maximum number of instances in each request is 100.
  • This API is async. After the request is sent successfully, a RequestId will be returned. At this time, the operation is not completed immediately. The result of the instance operation can be queried by calling the DescribeInstances API. If the latest operation status (LatestOperationState) of the instance is SUCCESS, the operation is successful.

A maximum of 10 requests can be initiated per second for this API.
