Instance Management

Last updated: 2021-05-10 18:00:10

    The instance management feature displays the information of the TencentDB instances supporting DBbrain so that you can conveniently manage database instances.

    • For TencentDB databases, this feature mainly displays the basic information of database instances (instance name/ID, status, etc.) and their groups, exception alarms, health scores, and operations.
    • For external databases, this feature mainly displays the basic information of database instances (instance name/ID, status, etc.), exception alarms, health scores, monitoring data collection, slow log collection, access methods, agent status, instance status, accounts, and operations.

    Note:

    Currently, instance management is supported only for TencentDB for MySQL (excluding the basic single-node instance) and external MySQL databases.
