Stop a network load balancer

    To stop a network load balancer:

    1. Open the Load Balancer section in the folder where you want to stop the load balancer.
    2. Click image in the row of that load balancer or open the page of the load balancer you need.
    3. Click Stop.
    4. In the window that opens, click Stop.

    If you don't have the Yandex.Cloud command line interface yet, install it.

    The folder specified in the CLI profile is used by default. You can specify a different folder using the --folder-name or --folder-id parameter.

    1. See the description of the CLI's stop network load balancer command:

      $ yc load-balancer network-load-balancer stop --help
      
    2. Get a list of all load balancers:

      $ yc load-balancer network-load-balancer list
      +----------------------+--------------------+-------------+----------+----------------+------------------------+----------+
      |          ID          |        NAME        |  REGION ID  |   TYPE   | LISTENER COUNT | ATTACHED TARGET GROUPS |  STATUS  |
      +----------------------+--------------------+-------------+----------+----------------+------------------------+----------+
      ...
      | b7r97ah2jn5rmo6k1dsk | test-load-balancer | ru-central1 | EXTERNAL |              1 | c58n3vh8saud47rj1cuk   |  ACTIVE  |
      ...
      +----------------------+--------------------+-------------+----------+----------------+------------------------+----------+
      
    3. Choose the ID or NAME of the required load balancer in the ACTIVE state.

    4. Stop the load balancer:

      $ yc load-balancer network-load-balancer stop b7r97ah2jn5rmo6k1dsk
      

    You can stop load balancers using the stop API method.
