Title is long story short.
Long story is: we have a GitLab instance running on AWS. We want to take use AWS snapshots to back up our data, but we need to make sure there are no file writes going on while the snapshot is taken. The best way we can think to do this is to pause the GitLab instance, take the snapshot, and then restart it. To automate this we are thinking about using a GitLab job. So the runner would have to pause gitlab during the scheduled time, and then restart the gitlab instance after. Is this possible?
