Viewing Backup Capacity

Last updated: 2020-07-20 17:40:03

    This document describes how to view the MySQL instance backup capacity and free tier in the console.

    Operation Scenarios

    The backup space occupied by TencentDB for MySQL instance backup files is allocated by region. It is equivalent to the total storage capacity used by all MySQL database backups in a region, including automatic data backups, manual data backups, and log backups. Increasing the backup retention time or manual backup frequency will use more database backup storage capacity.

    Directions

    1. Log in to the TencentDB for MySQL Console and select Database Backup on the left sidebar.
    2. Select a region at the top to view its backup information on the Overview tab, including total backup, backup trend, and real-time backup statistics.
      • Total Backup: this section displays the size and quantity of all, data, and log backups as well as the free tier occupied by all the backups.

        Note:

        • Green: the total backup space used does not exceed the free tier.
        • Orange: the total backup space used has exceeded the free tier and incurred fees. For more information, please see Backup Space Billing.
      • Backup Trend: this section displays the trends of each backup count.
      • Real-Time Backup Statistics: this section displays the names/IDs (you can click a name/ID to enter the instance details page), backup space values (which can be sorted by backup size), and data/log backups of instances in the selected region. You can search for an instance by name/ID in the search box in the top-right corner.
    3. Click the Backup List tab to enter the backup list. The backup list can be divided into data backups and log backups. Click an instance name/ID in the list to enter the instance details page. The backup list supports filtering by time period and fuzzy search by instance name/ID.
      • Data backup list
        • Filtering by information field is supported:
          Type: all, logical cold backup, physical cold backup.
          Backup Mode: all, auto, manual.
          Backup Method: currently, only full backup is supported.
        • Backups can be sorted by backup time, task start time, task end time, and backup size.
        • Click Details in the "Operation" column to enter the instance backup and restoration page, where you can click Download to download backups. Only manual backups can be deleted.
      • Log backup list
        • Backups can be sorted by log data start time and log data end time.
        • Click Details in the "Operation" column to enter the instance backup and restoration page, where you can click Download to download logs.
