If you have an overdue payment for a cluster, E-MapReduce (EMR) sends you a notification. If you want to continue using the cluster, you must settle your overdue payment at the earliest opportunity before the cluster is released. This topic describes the overdue payment of an EMR cluster and how to view the overdue payment.

Overdue payments

The overdue payment of a cluster does not affect the performance of another cluster. For example, if you have a pay-as-you-go cluster with an overdue payment and a subscription cluster that has not expired, the subscription cluster can work as expected.

Billing method Overdue policy
Subscription Overdue payments do not apply to subscription clusters.
Pay-as-you-go

If your Alibaba Cloud account does not have sufficient funds, such as vouchers or cash, to cover the fees that are generated by your cluster in the previous hour, the cluster enters the Overdue state.

Within 15 days after the payment becomes overdue, pay-as-you-go ECS resources are retained but they cannot function properly. If you still do not top up your account within 15 days after the payment becomes overdue, the cluster will be released and all data on the cluster will be lost. For more information about ECS overdue payments, see Overdue payments. After a payment becomes overdue, you cannot use the EMR service of the cluster. The EMR service can be used only after you settle the overdue payment.
