App Engine

Instances in the Admin Console

The Instances Dashboard is part of the App Engine Admin Console:

It shows instances assigned to your application with some information and controls:

  • Average Queries Per Second (QPS) over the last minute
  • Average Latency over the last minute
  • The number of requests received in the last minute
  • The Age, or how long the instance has been running
  • Current memory usage
  • The instance's availability, either resident or dynamic.
  • A Shutdown button to shut down the instance.
See How Applications Scale for more information on how instances are created and scaled.
