Start, stop, delete, or update runtime for multiple canaries

You can stop, start, delete, or update the runtime of as many as five canaries with one action. If you update the runtime of a canary, it is updated to the latest runtime available for the language and framework that the canary uses.

If you select multiple canaries and only some of them are in a state that is valid for the action that you select, the action is performed only on the canaries where that action is valid. For example, if you select some canaries that are currently running and some that are not, and you select to start the canaries, the canaries that weren't already running will start, and the canaries that were already running are not affected.

If none of the canaries that you select are valid for an action, that action will not be available in the menu.
