This topic describes how to release a Server Load Balancer (SLB) instance. You can immediately release pay-as-you-go SLB instances or release them on schedule. After an SLB instance is deleted, you are no longer charged for it.

Background information


  1. Log on to the SLB console.
  2. Select the region where the SLB instance is deployed.
  3. Find the SLB instance that you want to release, and choose More > Release in the Actions column.

    To release multiple SLB instances at a time, select the SLB instances and click Release at the bottom of the page.

  4. In the Release panel, click Release Now or Release on Schedule.
    Note The system releases the SLB instances at 30-minute and hour marks. However, billing for the SLB instance is stopped at the specified release time.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Click OK to release the SLB instance.
