REST Resource: regionInstanceGroupManagers

Resource: InstanceGroupManager

Represents a Managed Instance Group resource.

An instance group is a collection of VM instances that you can manage as a single entity. For more information, read Instance groups.

For zonal Managed Instance Group, use the instanceGroupManagers resource.

For regional Managed Instance Group, use the regionInstanceGroupManagers resource.

Fields
id

string (uint64 format)

[Output Only] A unique identifier for this resource type. The server generates this identifier.

creationTimestamp

string

[Output Only] The creation timestamp for this managed instance group in RFC3339 text format.

name

string

The name of the managed instance group. The name must be 1-63 characters long, and comply with RFC1035.

description

string

An optional description of this resource.

zone

string

[Output Only] The URL of a zone where the managed instance group is located (for zonal resources).

region

string

[Output Only] The URL of the region where the managed instance group resides (for regional resources).

distributionPolicy

object

Policy specifying the intended distribution of managed instances across zones in a regional managed instance group.

distributionPolicy.zones[]

object

Zones where the regional managed instance group will create and manage its instances.

distributionPolicy.zones[].zone

string

The URL of the zone. The zone must exist in the region where the managed instance group is located.

distributionPolicy.targetShape

enum

The distribution shape to which the group converges either proactively or on resize events (depending on the value set in updatePolicy.instanceRedistributionType).

instanceTemplate

string

The URL of the instance template that is specified for this managed instance group. The group uses this template to create all new instances in the managed instance group. The templates for existing instances in the group do not change unless you run recreateInstances, run applyUpdatesToInstances, or set the group's updatePolicy.type to PROACTIVE.

versions[]

object

Specifies the instance templates used by this managed instance group to create instances.

Each version is defined by an instanceTemplate and a name. Every version can appear at most once per instance group. This field overrides the top-level instanceTemplate field. Read more about the relationships between these fields. Exactly one version must leave the targetSize field unset. That version will be applied to all remaining instances. For more information, read about canary updates.

versions[].name

string

Name of the version. Unique among all versions in the scope of this managed instance group.

versions[].instanceTemplate

string

The URL of the instance template that is specified for this managed instance group. The group uses this template to create new instances in the managed instance group until the targetSize for this version is reached. The templates for existing instances in the group do not change unless you run recreateInstances, run applyUpdatesToInstances, or set the group's updatePolicy.type to PROACTIVE; in those cases, existing instances are updated until the targetSize for this version is reached.

versions[].targetSize

object

Specifies the intended number of instances to be created from the instanceTemplate. The final number of instances created from the template will be equal to:

  • If expressed as a fixed number, the minimum of either targetSize.fixed or instanceGroupManager.targetSize is used.
  • if expressed as a percent, the targetSize would be (targetSize.percent/100 * InstanceGroupManager.targetSize) If there is a remainder, the number is rounded.
If unset, this version will update any remaining instances not updated by another version. Read Starting a canary update for more information.

versions[].targetSize.fixed

integer

Specifies a fixed number of VM instances. This must be a positive integer.

versions[].targetSize.percent

integer

Specifies a percentage of instances between 0 to 100%, inclusive. For example, specify 80 for 80%.

versions[].targetSize.calculated

integer

[Output Only] Absolute value of VM instances calculated based on the specific mode.

  • If the value is fixed, then the calculated value is equal to the fixed value.
  • If the value is a percent, then the calculated value is percent/100 * targetSize. For example, the calculated value of a 80% of a managed instance group with 150 instances would be (80/100 * 150) = 120 VM instances. If there is a remainder, the number is rounded.
instanceGroup

string

[Output Only] The URL of the Instance Group resource.

targetPools[]

string

The URLs for all TargetPool resources to which instances in the instanceGroup field are added. The target pools automatically apply to all of the instances in the managed instance group.

baseInstanceName

string

The base instance name to use for instances in this group. The value must be 1-58 characters long. Instances are named by appending a hyphen and a random four-character string to the base instance name. The base instance name must comply with RFC1035.

fingerprint

string (bytes format)

Fingerprint of this resource. This field may be used in optimistic locking. It will be ignored when inserting an InstanceGroupManager. An up-to-date fingerprint must be provided in order to update the InstanceGroupManager, otherwise the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet.

To see the latest fingerprint, make a get() request to retrieve an InstanceGroupManager.

A base64-encoded string.

currentActions

object

[Output Only] The list of instance actions and the number of instances in this managed instance group that are scheduled for each of those actions.

currentActions.none

integer

[Output Only] The number of instances in the managed instance group that are running and have no scheduled actions.

currentActions.creating

integer

[Output Only] The number of instances in the managed instance group that are scheduled to be created or are currently being created. If the group fails to create any of these instances, it tries again until it creates the instance successfully.

If you have disabled creation retries, this field will not be populated; instead, the creatingWithoutRetries field will be populated.

currentActions.creatingWithoutRetries

integer

[Output Only] The number of instances that the managed instance group will attempt to create. The group attempts to create each instance only once. If the group fails to create any of these instances, it decreases the group's targetSize value accordingly.

currentActions.verifying

integer

[Output Only] The number of instances in the managed instance group that are being verified. See the managedInstances[].currentAction property in the listManagedInstances method documentation.

currentActions.recreating

integer

[Output Only] The number of instances in the managed instance group that are scheduled to be recreated or are currently being being recreated. Recreating an instance deletes the existing root persistent disk and creates a new disk from the image that is defined in the instance template.

currentActions.deleting

integer

[Output Only] The number of instances in the managed instance group that are scheduled to be deleted or are currently being deleted.

currentActions.abandoning

integer

[Output Only] The total number of instances in the managed instance group that are scheduled to be abandoned. Abandoning an instance removes it from the managed instance group
