Modifying the Bandwidth


If you set the Network Type of a load balancer to Public IPv4 network or IPv6 network, the load balancer can route requests over the Internet and you can modify the bandwidth used by the EIP bound to the load balancer as required.

  • When changing bandwidth, you need to change the specifications of the dedicated load balancer to avoid speed limit due to insufficient bandwidth.
  • The bandwidth of the EIP bound to the load balancer is the limit for traffic required by the clients to access the load balancer.

Modifying the Bandwidth

When you modify the bandwidth, traffic routing will not be interrupted.

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. In the upper left corner of the page, click and select the desired region and project.
  3. Hover on in the upper left corner to display Service List and choose Network > Elastic Load Balance.
  4. On the Load Balancers page, locate the load balancer and click More in the Operation column.
  5. Dedicated load balancers: Click Modify IPv4 Bandwidth or Modify IPv6 Bandwidth.

    Shared load balancers: Click Modify IPv4 Bandwidth.

  6. In the New Configuration area, modify the bandwidth and click Next.

    You can select the bandwidth defined by the system or customize the bandwidth. The bandwidth ranges from 1 Mbit/s to 2,000 Mbit/s.

  7. Confirm the modified bandwidth and click Pay Now.

    After you change the billing option and bandwidth, the price will be recalculated accordingly.
