What is Auto-suspend?

Automatically suspending the warehouse if it is inactive for the specified period of time.

Warehouses can be started and stopped at any time. They can also be resized at any time, even while running, to accommodate the need for more or less compute resources, based on the type of operations being performed by the warehouse.

Auto-suspend and auto-resume apply only to the entire warehouse and not to the individual clusters in the warehouse. For a multi-cluster warehouse:

  • Auto-suspend only occurs when the minimum number of clusters is running and there is no activity for the specified period of time. The minimum is typically 1 (cluster), but could be more than 1.
  • Auto-resume only applies when the entire warehouse is suspended (i.e. no clusters are running).
