Table 1 Common EIP functions




EIP and Bandwidth


The EIP service enables your cloud resources to communicate with the Internet using static public IP addresses and scalable bandwidths.

You can assign EIPs, bind them to or unbind them from cloud resources, release EIPs, modify EIP bandwidth, and upgrade static BGP to dynamic BGP.

For details, see EIP Overview.

Shared Bandwidth

All ECSs, BMSs, and load balancers can share the same bandwidth if they reside in the same region and have EIPs bound.

You can assign, modify, delete a shared bandwidth, add EIPs to a shared bandwidth, and remove EIPs from a shared bandwidth.

For details, see Shared Bandwidth Overview.

Shared Data Package

A shared data package provides a quota for data usage. Shared data packages take effect immediately after your purchase. If you have subscribed to pay-per-use EIPs billed by traffic in a region and buy a shared data package in the same region, the EIPs will use the shared data package. After the package quota is used up or the package expires, the EIPs will continue to be billed on a pay-per-use basis.

For details, see Shared Data Package Overview.


Viewing Metrics

If you have subscribed to the VPC service, you can view bandwidth and EIP usage through Cloud Eye without adding plug-ins. On Cloud Eye, you can also create alarm rules, and customize monitored resources and notification policies.

For details, see Supported Metrics.
