The lifecycle of a Tencent Cloud CVM instance refers to all statuses from the launch of the instance to its release. Properly managing the Tencent Cloud instance in different statuses can ensure that applications running on the instance provide services economically and efficiently.
|Status Name||Status Attributes||Description|
|Creating||Intermediate status||The instance has been created but is not running yet.|
|Running||Steady status||The instance is running normally, and you can run your services on this instance.|
|Restarting||Intermediate status||A restart operation has been performed for the instance via the console or APIs, but the instance is not running yet. If this status lasts for a long time, there may be an exception.|
|Reinstalling||Intermediate status||The instance's system has been reinstalled or its disk has been reconfigured via the console or APIs, but the instance is not running yet.|
|Shutting Down||Intermediate status||A shutdown operation has been performed for the instance via the console or APIs, but the instance has not been shut down yet. If this status lasts for a long time, there may be an exception. We do not recommend forced shutdown.|
|Shutdown||Steady status||The instance has been shut down normally and cannot provide external services. Some instance attributes can only be modified when the instance is in shutdown status.|
|Terminating||Intermediate status||The instance has expired for 7 days or the user has performed the termination operation, but it has not completed yet.|
|Reclaimed||Steady status||A pay-as-you-go instance has been manually terminated for less than 2 hours and put into the recycle bin. In this status, the instance does not provide external services.|
|Released||Steady status||The release operation has been completed. The original instance no longer exists, cannot provide services, and its data is completely cleared.|
We recommend you restart an instance via the Tencent Cloud Console or Tencent Cloud APIs instead of running the OS restart command in the instance.
For more information about how to restart an instance, please see Restart Instances.
You can shut down the instance via the console or APIs.
For more information about shutting down an instance, please see Shutdown Instances.
If you no longer need an instance, you can terminate and release it via Tencent Cloud Console or APIs.
When an instance is terminated, its system disks and data disks specified at purchase will be released. However, cloud disks mounted on the instance will not be affected.
For more information on terminating an instance, please see Terminate Instances.
