Creation of cancel button command, to delayed or not response actions in the server.
Bumping this thread.
My droplet currently counts +70Gb: requires +2 hours to complete the snapshot process. I believe would be very useful to have the choice for cancelling a snapshot in progress.
I'd like to "bump" this thread, if possible. I am currently sitting with my 3rd or 4th stuck droplet/database since I started using DigitalOcean. It usually resolves itself or I can get help, but there is a large amount of time before I can try to spin up a new one.
Dear DO, at least, can you answer my support ticket please and cancel snapshot creation manually from your side? It is an absolutely unimaginable and unacceptable situation for a production environment!
Interesting suggestion, definitely something we are going to look into.
Going to look into that and see if we can provide a way to get events cancelled before they start processing.
I came here as it was Processing... longer than a previous snapshot tool. I assume this is due to some queue on your backend. Maybe you could indicate to the user how big the queue is if this is the reason. I would rather know its being stalled because of your system load rather than what seems like an inconstant failure of some kind. Anyways, snapshots are a awesome feature :)
Just chiming in; definitely would love to see some sort of timer indicating how long the snapshot process is going to take with the option to cancel it.
Creating a snapshot went from 3 minutes to....I have no idea as it is still running after 15 minutes. I only changed 3 config lines.....As the droplet is a very heavy used redirector, such long downtime is really bad. What makes it take this long?
Glad I found out pre-production :)
For example, I pressed to take a snapshot with the server off and it got held in the processing status....
snapshot is already running for 8 Min... knowing when it's going to end or being able to cancel it
yes, I am also facing the same snapshot stuck problem. Please add the cancel option.
I'd also like to be able to know more about what is happening when a snapshot is being created and cancel it if it's taking too long. Still waiting after 20 minutes.
Agree there must be a way for customer to decide when the window for a snapshot is over, since the machine is offline. Can't hold the domain hostage. Not sure if the progress bar is accurate either. Look forward to Singapore-like solution with online snapshots of a mirror. Thanks!
i agree please :)
Part of this rolls back to the ability to run snapshots online. I know that would solve 90% of my issues, but cancel would still be a good option.
yes, please allow user to cancel it.
my data is 60GB, its taking too much
At the very least inform us that once the process is started you CANT stop it.
Suggestion opened 3 years ago... no comment. And yes, mine snapshot creation stuck on processing too.
It would be great to have a feature to cancel a droplet create in the middle of the event process in case if a user changed his mind. I mainly got this idea because of the issue that DigitalOcean had few minutes ago with slow event processing, but the same could be used in a normal day.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
