Aura Free Instance Pause Change
It would be helpful to change the Aura Free Instance Pause from 3 (three) days to 7 (seven) days. It seems the algorithm that triggers this response often goes off prematurely. In addition, when there are holiday and vacation times, there may be inadvertent inactivity. Having a 7 day window would be more reasonable and workable.
Glad to be getting a little support here, please share with others who may find of benefit. Thanks
Fred Cheyunski: Hi Fred, thanks for your feedback on this. The DB is only paused when there is inactivity. If you write an application which queries the instance every day then it will remain live. Our free tier costs us money to run, so to save on wasteful usage (and to save the environment!) we limit the number of days without pausing.
Aman Singh: Hi Aman, Appreciate you responding, but I am not a developer so not equipped to "write an application which queries the instance every day." Thus most days I do sign-in and query myself, but there instances like in June with graduations in the family where I will travel and such sign in will not be convenient. As Aura DB is cloud, I realized I can access via mobile device, so that is likely route I will take. If there was a better algorithm that took in to account those who are active most of the time that would also help save costs and environment, plus encourge those who are not developers.
PS. I can provide log records that I keep that can attest that I have been active for most days over at least the past three months if that would be helpful.
