Modify Instance Group Type

You can easily change the instance type of CML workspaces, which is beneficial for optimizing performance and cost.

Key Benefits of Modifying Instance Groups:

  1. Scalability and Flexibility: Scale up or down to meet user workload needs, handle peak traffic or save costs during off-peak periods.
  2. Cloud Provider Compatibility: We understand that cloud providers may retire or end-of-service (EOS) certain instance types. Our Modify Instance Group feature takes this into account and allows you to seamlessly adapt to changes in the cloud provider's offerings, ensuring your CML workspace stays up-to-date.

Currently, Instance Group modification is only supported for CPU and GPU Worker instance groups.

Modify the Instance Group from the CDPCLI

The following example shows how to modify the instance group from the command line.

cdp ml modify-cluster-instance-group --workspace-crn <workspace-crn>
   --instance-group-name <instance-group-name> –instance-type <instance-type>
