Cluster States

Stopped

When a cluster is in the Stopped state, there are no nodes running. You are only billed for the shared volume.

Starting

In this state, the head node is starting up, initializing the shared volume, and generating TLS certificates. It generally takes about a minute to boot the head node, though filesystem checks on large shared volumes could cause the boot process to be slower.

On the first boot, the shared volume will need to be formatted. This can take a few minutes depending on the shared volume size.

Active

The cluster is online and working.

Stopping

The cluster is stopping attempting to shut down in an orderly manner.
