Releasing Idle CLB Instances

Last updated: 2022-08-11 11:22:03

    When a pay-as-you-go instance is not configured with a listener or bound to a real server seven days after the creation, it’s considered as an idle instance. To reduce unnecessary charges, please release idle instances in time.


    The feature is currently in beta test. To try it out, please submit a ticket.


    CLB supports batch release of idle instances in the same region only.



    The idle instance data can be cached for one day. Make sure that the instance to be released is not in use to prevent a release error.

    1. Log in to the CLB Console and click Idle Instance on the left sidebar.
    2. Select a region in the upper left corner of the idle instance page, find the target instance in the idle instance list, and click Delete in the Operation column on the right.
    3. (Optional) Select all instances on the left side of the idle instance list, and click Delete at the top of the page.
    4. In the pop-up window, confirm the instance information and click OK.
