Old VM from an old version still running despite scaling to 0?

Tried fly vm stop <id> for several times but it still won’t stop. Running fly status shows that the app is dead but the VM is still running:

It fixed itself hours after this post. I guess the solution was to wait for the process to end…?

This likely correlated with scheduling delays in Singapore. There are times when we can’t start or stop a VM as quickly as we want.

In most cases, these should stop almost immediately. In some cases, things will run longer than you expect.
