Stop a cluster
Cloudbreak supports stopping and restarting clusters. Once a cluster is in the ""Running" state, it can be stopped.
- Browse to the cluster details.
- Click Stop to stop a currently running cluster.
- Click Yes to confirm.
- Your cluster status changes to “Stopping in progress” and then to “Stopped”. Once stopping the infrastructure has completed, you will see a Start option to restart your cluster.
When a cluster is in the “stopped” state, cluster VMs are given back to the cloud provider; Once the cluster is restarted, new VMs are provisioned. Therefore when a cluster is in the “stopped” state, you are no longer charged for VMs, but you are charged for external storage.
