Stopping a database activity stream - Amazon Relational Database Service

Stopping a database activity stream

You can stop an activity stream using the console or AWS CLI.

If you delete your RDS for Oracle DB instance, the activity stream is stopped and the underlying Amazon Kinesis stream is deleted automatically.

To turn off an activity stream

  1. Open the Amazon RDS console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/rds/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Databases.

  3. Choose a database that you want to stop the database activity stream for.

  4. For Actions, choose Stop activity stream. The Database Activity Stream window appears.

    1. Choose Immediately.

      When you choose Immediately, the RDS instance restarts right away. If you choose During the next maintenance window, the RDS instance doesn't restart right away. In this case, the database activity stream doesn't stop until the next maintenance window.

    2. Choose Continue.

To stop database activity streams for your database, configure the DB instance using the AWS CLI command stop-activity-stream. Identify the AWS Region for the DB instance using the --region parameter. The --apply-immediately parameter is optional.

For Linux, macOS, or Unix:

aws rds --region MY_REGION \ stop-activity-stream \ --resource-arn MY_DB_ARN \ --apply-immediately

For Windows:

aws rds --region MY_REGION ^ stop-activity-stream ^ --resource-arn MY_DB_ARN ^ --apply-immediately

To stop database activity streams for your database, configure the DB instance using the StopActivityStream operation. Identify the AWS Region for the DB instance using the Region parameter. The ApplyImmediately parameter is optional.
