    What is the maximum capacity of a single instance?

    Edition Specification Range
    Memory Edition (Standard Architecture) 0.25–64 GB
    Memory Edition (Cluster Architecture) 12 GB–20 TB
    CKV Edition (Standard Architecture) 4–384 GB
    CKV Edition (Cluster Architecture) 12 GB–48 TB

    Is the data stored in TencentDB for Redis reliable?

    Redis Standard Architecture (zero-replica) does not provide high availability. Other editions of Redis adopt a master/replica replication structure, where data reliability is ensured by hot backup plus daily cold backup of the data.

    Which persistence method does TencentDB for Redis use?

    On the TencentDB for Redis backend, the backup cluster performs full and incremental data backup, and persistence is done on the replicas which is virtually imperceptible to the online business.

    Why is 2 MB of storage capacity used right after an instance is purchased?

    That is used by the TencentDB for Redis instance in maintaining its data structure.

    Can TencentDB for Redis be managed with visual tools such as Redis Desktop Manager?

    You can perform OPS and management operations in the TencentDB for Redis console. If you need to use a visual tool, use a CVM instance as a jump server to provide an access address for Redis Desktop Manager.

    Will my business be interrupted during capacity expansion and reduction?

    • Redis 2.8 Standard Architecture: there will be a momentary disconnection during capacity expansion and reduction.
    • Editions other than Redis 2.8 Standard Architecture: there will be a momentary disconnection during capacity reduction.
    • Editions other than Redis 2.8 Standard Architecture: there will not be disconnections during capacity expansion (except for blocking commands such as BLPOP).

    How do I add a monitoring alarm?

    This can be implemented through custom monitoring and alarming. For more information, please see Monitoring and Alarming.

    Do I need to purchase different instances for selecting 0-15 databases?

    No. Multiple databases can be set on one Standard Architecture or Cluster Architecture instance.

    Does TencentDB for Redis support Lua?

    • For Redis Memory Edition (Standard Architecture) instances purchased before September 1, 2018, Lua is not enabled by default. You can submit a ticket for application.

    What should I do if the data on a replica node is out of sync with the data on the master node in TencentDB for Redis?

    Updates of the TencentDB for Redis master node will be automatically replicated to its associated replica node. Due to Redis' async replication mechanism, replica node updates may lag behind the master node updates. Possible reasons are as follows:
    -The I/O write volume of the master node exceeds the sync speed of the replica node.

    • There is a network delay between the master node and the replica node.
