    Feature Overview

    You can group cross-region and cross-project group instances of a Tencent Cloud product for unified management.

    Notes

    • Each instance group can contain up to 2,000 instances, and a maximum of 200 instances can be added to an instance group at a time.
    • By grouping instances, you can manage cross-region and cross-project group Tencent Cloud products in a unified manner and configure alarm policies to avoid repeated operations and improve Ops efficiency.
