Why is my cluster rebalancing/resizing?

Clusters are typically in an active state, meaning they are operating normally. However, a cluster may instead be in a rebalancing or resizing state:

  • If a cluster is rebalancing, we are recycling it for maintenance, troubleshooting, or another internal operation.

  • If a cluster is resizing, we are in the process of adjusting its storage, as per customer request.

In either case, you can expect no downtime and do not need to take action. If the cluster’s state does not return to active for an extended period of time, please contact our support team.
