To create a cluster:
- On the main menu, click dashboard or my clusters.
- Click + new cluster.
- Move the cluster size slider left or right to set the number of nodes that will be available to the cluster. To create the free sandbox cluster, move the slider all the way to the left, or click sandbox (for more information on the sandbox cluster, see Xplenty's clusters).
- To terminate the cluster after a period of inactivity, click the checkbox Terminate after, then click the required inactivity period from the drop-down list. This will cause the cluster to terminate some time AFTER the inactivity period you selected.
- Click create cluster. As the creation process progresses, the status (indicated on the cluster itself) changes from Pending to Creating to Available. If creation failed, the status will show Error.
