Stop and Start a Cluster

How to stop or start an existing cluster.

To stop an launched cluster, or start a stopped cluster:

    1. If the cluster is currently running, select Stop to halt its operations.

Depending on the size of your cluster, it may take a few minutes until it is fully stopped or is restarted. To access the health and availability of the cluster, see Cluster Health or the Cluster Availability.
