If you find that you are reaching the CPU or disk limits of your infrastructure container, you can resize it. Resizing happens within seconds, in place, with no down-time for the instance you resize.

Note: that changes to memory or CPU in a bhyve instance will require a restart.

Resizing an instance from the portal

From the the Triton Compute Service portal, navigate to the compute pane, which will automatically lead you to the subcategory instances and list all of your available instances. Click on the instance you want to resize. Scroll down and click the resize instance section to expand. You will see the current size of your instance and a dropdown menu of new size options. Select the new size and click the resize button.

Keep in mind the following:

Note: You can only increase the size of a container. Resizing down is not supported.
