As the "Stop instance" and "Kill instance" buttons are next to each other, it occurs, that a instance is killed by accident and not stopped.
It would be awesome if you'd need to confirm this.
is this really required? unfortunately it's not uncommon that AEM instances do not shutdown cleanly, so kill should be very easy.
on the other side AEM is very "kill-safe" (the whole architecture of repository & AEM was designed with this in mind), so normally for a development instance a kill is just the "fastest stop".
If you don't see any problems with the kill, I'm fine with it. Just had a bad feeling..
