Statuses

This section lists possible instance group statuses and statuses of instances in groups.

Note

The statuses of instances in groups differ from the statuses of instances in Compute Cloud.

Instance group status

Statuses of instances in the group

Status Description
CREATING_INSTANCE Instance is being created.
AWAITING_STARTUP_DURATION After starting, the instance keeps this status for the startup period specified by the user. During this time, user apps can start up and the instance won't receive any time. For automatic scaling, instances with this status are not taken into account.
OPENING_TRAFFIC The instance is ready to receive network traffic.
AWAITING_WARMUP_DURATION When automatic scaling is enabled, instances switch to this status when they start receiving network traffic. Instances keep this status during the warm-up period specified in the automatic scaling settings. Metric values received from an instance with this status are replaced with average values from instances in the same availability zone.
RUNNING_ACTUAL The instance is started, receives network traffic, and user apps are running.
CHECKING_HEALTH The instance status is being checked.
CLOSING_TRAFFIC The instance isn't ready to receive network traffic.
STOPPING_INSTANCE The instance is being stopped.
STOPPED The instance was stopped. You aren't charged for instances with this status.
STARTING_INSTANCE The OS and user application are being started.
RUNNING_OUTDATED The instance is running but will soon be updated or deleted.
UPDATING_INSTANCE The basic parameters or metadata are being updated without re-creating the instance.
DELETING_INSTANCE The instance is being deleted.
