Modifying an Amazon RDS DB Instance and first-touch penalties



I was wondering how modifying an Amazon RDS DB Instance works internally. Is the old volume reused? Is a snapshot loaded from S3?

Namely, what I really want to know if changing the instance type lead to first-touch penalties on the first queries or not?

Best regards.

RDS Instance type modification does not require "pre-warming" the storage, since the storage volumes are reutilized and reattached to the new instance.
