Server Load Balancer supports the pay-by-traffic billing method.

Billing items

Billing items differ by instance type and performance type, as shown in the following table:

Note: On the corresponding item, “ -“ represents no charges.

Instance type Instance performance type Billing item
Instance configuration fee Traffic fee
Internet Shared Current configuration fee Public traffic fee
Guaranteed Current configuration fee + performance specification fee Public traffic fee
Intranet Shared - -
Guaranteed Performance specification fee -


The cost is calculated as follows:

  • Total cost= instance configuration fee + public network traffic fee.

  • Public network traffic is the outbound traffic (downstream). Inbound traffic (upstream) is not included in the cost.

  • The traffic is billed on an hourly basis, and the fee is deducted in real time. Partial hours are billed as full hours.

  • The payment is due at the end of each month. Once the invoice is generated, the amount is charged to your default payment method.
