Delete stack

To delete a stack you've built, run

aws cloudformation delete-stack \
--stack-name mystack

Monitoring the stack

Optionally, you can use Wavefront to monitor your stack. To get started, we've added a sample dashboard (wavefront.json). To use this dashboard, first create a new dashboard ans select the JSON button on the top right hand side of the screen. In that window, you can copy/paste the contents of wavefront.json (just be sure to update the variables AWS Account ID and ECS Cluster).


You can’t perform that action at this time.
