MachineTypes

Represents a MachineType resource. Machine types determine the virtualized hardware specifications of your virtual machine instances, such as the amount of memory or number of virtual CPUs. Read Machine Types for more information.

Resource representations

A Machine Type resource.

{
  "kind": "compute#machineType",
  "id": unsigned long,
  "creationTimestamp": string,
  "name": string,
  "description": string,
  "guestCpus": integer,
  "memoryMb": integer,
  "imageSpaceGb": integer,

Property name Value Description Notes
creationTimestamp string [Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.
deprecated nested object [Output Only] The deprecation status associated with this machine type.
deprecated.deleted string An optional RFC3339 timestamp on or after which the state of this resource is intended to change to DELETED. This is only informational and the status will not change unless the client explicitly changes it.
deprecated.deprecated string An optional RFC3339 timestamp on or after which the state of this resource is intended to change to DEPRECATED. This is only informational and the status will not change unless the client explicitly changes it.
deprecated.obsolete string An optional RFC3339 timestamp on or after which the state of this resource is intended to change to OBSOLETE. This is only informational and the status will not change unless the client explicitly changes it.
deprecated.replacement string The URL of the suggested replacement for a deprecated resource. The suggested replacement resource must be the same kind of resource as the deprecated resource.
deprecated.state string The deprecation state of this resource. This can be DEPRECATED, OBSOLETE, or DELETED. Operations which create a new resource using a DEPRECATED resource will return successfully, but with a warning indicating the deprecated resource and recommending its replacement. Operations which use OBSOLETE or DELETED resources will be rejected and result in an error.
description string [Output Only] An optional textual description of the resource.
guestCpus integer [Output Only] The number of virtual CPUs that are available to the instance.
id unsigned long [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
imageSpaceGb integer [Deprecated] This property is deprecated and will never be populated with any relevant values.
isSharedCpu boolean [Output Only] Whether this machine type has a shared CPU. See Shared-core machine types for more information.
kind string [Output Only] The type of the resource. Always compute#machineType for machine types.
maximumPersistentDisks integer [Output Only] Maximum persistent disks allowed.
maximumPersistentDisksSizeGb string [Output Only] Maximum total persistent disks size (GB) allowed.
memoryMb integer [Output Only] The amount of physical memory available to the instance, defined in MB.
name string [Output Only] Name of the resource.
scratchDisks[] list [Output Only] List of extended scratch disks assigned to the instance.
scratchDisks[].diskGb integer [Output Only] Size of the scratch disk, defined in GB.
zone string [Output Only] The name of the zone where the machine type resides, such as us-central1-a.

Methods
