Details Instance

This document explains how to view instance details such as CPU usage, RAM usage, private IP address, gateway, floating IP, reboot instace, and more. Here’s how to view instance details.

  • Click on an Instance Name

Instance Page

  • On the instance detail page you will see the details of CPU Usage, RAM Usage, Network In Usage, Network Out Usage, Disk Read, and Disk Write.

Detail Instance - vCPU Usage

Detail Instance - Memory Total

Reboot Instance

To reboot the instance, you can do 2 reboots of which Soft Reboot is used to slowly restart your VM system by stopping all running processes one by one while Hard Reboot is used to force restart the system when your instance is already showing no response.

  • To get Soft Reboot and Hard Reboot, click the Power menu. Can be seen in the menu section Reboot

Power Page - Reboot Menu

  • To restart the VM system by stopping all running processes one by one, click the Soft Reboot button, while to restart the VM system by force stopping click the Hard Reboot button.

Resize Instance

You can change the existing machine type if it doesn’t suit the workload you are running on the VM. You can change the VM machine type to match the amount of vCPU and memory as your workload changes.

Instance Page

  • In the Action column, click More, then select Resize Instance.

Instance Page - Resize Instance

  • Select the machine type and adjust the cpu and memory as needed, then click the Resize button.
    • General, VM size provides a balanced CPU to memory ratio.
    • Compute Optimized, delivers the highest performance CPU on Compute Engine and is optimized for compute intensive workloads.
    • Shared, this provides a cost-effective method for running small applications that are not resource intensive.
    • Memory Optimized, provides high memory to CPU ratio, optimized for memory-intensive workloads.

Resize Root Disk

You can increase the disk root size when your VM instance needs additional storage space. You can only resize the root disk to increase its size, you cannot reduce the size of the root disk.

Instance Page

  • In the Action column, click More, then select Resize Root Disk.

Instance Page - Resize Root Disk

  • Enter the size of Root Disk as needed, but the root disk cannot be below 20GB. then click Resize Root Disk to save or cancel if you don’t change the size of the root disk.

Instance Page - Increase Root Disk Size

  • There will be a process of expanding the size of the root disk.

Instance Page - Process Increase Root Disk

  • New data that has been saved is automatically updated in the Instance list

Attach Interface

On virtual machines in the Cloudka portal service, you can attach or detach VPC interfaces and Ports that are used by the virtual machine manually by specifying the IP address for your Instance to use. To attach a VPC make sure that you have created a VPC for the VPC creation step in sub-section VPC Network. Here are the steps to attach a VPC-based interface used by a virtual machine:

  • On the Cloud services portal page select the Instance menu in Deka Flexi.

Attach Interface

  • Click the Attach Interface button in the More column.

Attach Interface

  • You can choose by port or by VPC.

Attach Interface

a. by VPC If you choose by VPC then you must select VPC and enter the IP address that the Instance will use.

Attach Interface - by VPC

b. by Port If you choose by Port but there is no Port available then you can add a port in the VPC which can be seen in sub-chapter Add Port.

Attach Interface - by Port

  • After filling in all the columns, press the Attach button and the notification “Interface has been successfully attached!”

Attach Interface

Detach Interface

Here are the steps to detach the interface used by a virtual machine in the Cloudeka portal service:

  • On the Cloudeka portal service page, select the Instance menu on Deka Flexi.

Detach Interface

  • Click the Detach Interface button in the More column.

Detach Interface

  • Select the interface to detach and press the Detach button.

Detach Interface

  • The notification “Interface has been successfully detached!” that releasing the interface was successful.
