Terminating your Conductor Instance

Fugue Customer Success


From time to time, you may want to "turn off" your Fugue Conductor and stop its EC2 instance.  Unfortunately, there is no built-in functionality to achieve this from the Fugue CLI.  

To achieve resilience and high-availability, the Fugue Conductor's EC2 instance has an Auto-Scaling Group (ASG) configured.  This provides an automated mechanism for spinning the Conductor back up should it terminate for any reason.  This means that you cannot simply terminate the Conductor's EC2 instance.  You will have to defeat the ASG first.  To bring the Conductor back up, simply repeat the steps below and return the ASG's Desired, Min and Max back to 1 (one).

Follow these steps if you want to completely shut down the Fugue Conductor and it's EC2 instance:

  1. Log into the AWS Console
  2. Set your working region to the one your Fugue Conductor is running in (likely US East (N. Virginia))
  3. Navigate to the EC2 Dashboard, highlight the instance running the Fugue Conductor and in the left-navigation menu, select "Auto Scaling Groups"
  4. Click the "Edit" button
  5. Set Desired, Min and Max to 0 (zero)
  6. Click Save
  7. With the Conductor instance still highlighted, select Actions => Instance State => Terminate
