This topic describes how to release a Server Load Balancer (SLB) instance. You can release an SLB instance immediately or at a specified time.


  1. Log on to the SLB console.
  2. Find the target instance and click More > Release.

    You can select multiple SLB instances at a time and click Release at the bottom of the page to release SLB instances in batches.

  3. On the Release page, select Release Now or Release on Schedule.
    Note While the system executes the release operation every half hour or one hour cycle, the billing of the instance is stopped immediately at the release time you set.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Confirm the displayed information and click OK to release the instance.
