Add ability to "force" shutdown/deletion of instance
When rolling large instance groups, the wait time between the ACPI shutdown signal and the actual removal of the instance from the group is significant (and accrues quickly when performing staggered rollouts).
It would be great if instances could be "force-killed", since a clean shutdown isn't a requirement in many cases.
Thanks, that’s a very valid point – it mixes with another recent item about selecting which instances to take down. The ideal goal would be to quickly takedown any idle instances that don’t need clean shutdown but wait for clean shutdown (completion of request processing) for any busy instances. I’m sharing this feedback with the team for consideration.
