About viewing instances and instance details

You can view your Atmosphere instances in the Instance Details tab as well as when viewing the instance itself. You also can view and access your Atmosphere instances in the WShell (available for login via either through an SSH window or in the Web Shell tab), and in VNC (a Java-based VNC client that provides instant access to the desktop of the selected instance, accessible either in the Atmosphere VNC tab or via a separate VNC Viewer application). For information on using both methods, see Logging In to an Instance.

You can view the list of images and volumes in a project. From that list, you can then view details about an instance and take action on it, such as suspend and resume, stop and start, and delete an instance and view and access your Atmosphere instances using Web Shell or Web Desktop.

You can attach and detach one or more volumes in the same project to the same instance, view metrics about how your resources (memory, disk space, CPU, and AU usage) are being used on this instance, and view your instance history for each image you have launched.

After an instance is active, you can view details about it, including the IP address of the image, the IDs for the instance and its parent image (Based on Image), the date you launched the image, and the status of the instance.
