Start and stop a compute node

Last Updated: Sep 09, 2021

This topic describes how to start and stop a compute node. If your compute node is a pay-as-you-go ECS instance, you can start the node before you run a job and stop the node after you stop the job. This helps you save costs.

Prerequisites

The node is a compute node.

Start a compute node

  1. Log on to the Elastic High Performance Computing (E-HPC) console.

  2. In the top navigation bar, select a region.

  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Resource Management > Nodes.

  4. Select a cluster from the Cluster drop-down list.

  5. Select Compute Node from the Node Type drop-down list.

  6. In the Node List section, select the compute node that you want to start. Then, click Start.

Stop a compute node

If you stop a subscription compute node, its billing is not affected. If you stop a pay-as-you-go compute node for which you have enabled the economical mode, you are no longer charged for its computing resources. For more information, see Economical mode.

  1. Log on to the E-HPC console.

  2. In the top navigation bar, select a region.

  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Resource Management > Nodes.

  4. Select a cluster from the Cluster drop-down list.

  5. Select Compute Node from the Node Type drop-down list.

  6. In the Node List section, select the compute node that you want to stop. Then, click Stop.

  7. In the Stop message, click OK.
