To optimize resource utilization, Palette allows you to pause and resume virtual clusters that are not in use. This adds significant flexibility in managing operating costs and resource management for virtual clusters.

  1. Click on the specific cluster you want to check the status. This will take you to the cluster detail page. On this page, look for a section titled Status. The status section displays the current state of the cluster.
