I want to perform a clean, full system shutdown

There may be situations when you need to stop or decommission the entire MySQL database system. In this case we simply need to stop access to our DB instances and then bring them offline.

Required actions: What recipes should I apply to solve the situation?

Overall Strategy: Stop the application from using the DBs and decommission them.

  1. Disable application writes (and reads). This step will depend on your particular application. A typical scenario would be to put up a "maintenance" page, and bring down your application (in all existing instances).
  2. Disable or Enable continuous backups   Optional: Take one last backup of the DB, if appropriate.
  3. Safely stop/terminate your slave instance(s).
  4. Safely stop/terminate your Master-DB instance.
