Stop a Database

A shutdown terminates all database instances on all nodes and consequently the database becomes unavailable.

Do not use GCP Console to stop a database, as this may lead to data loss. Only use EXAoperation to stop a database.

All ongoing operations like transactions and backups are aborted upon database shutdown.

To shut down a database, click the checkbox next to the database and click Shutdown.

Alternatively, you can click the name of the database you want to shut down, choose the Shutdown action, and click Submit.
