This action leverages AWS EC2 API to manipulate the state of RDS database instances. It triggers stopping a database instance.
As it is not possible to stop instances of Multi-AZ clusters, please use the Trigger DB Cluster Failover action instead.
Note: This action will not perform a rollback. You will need to restart the database instance.
Stopping a DB instance will take several minutes or even hours in case of issues.
Note that this attack does not support any rollback. The attack triggers the stop via API. The stop can't be canceled.
