Last updated: 2020-10-23 15:45:10

    Instance List Page

    You can log in to the TencentDB for PostgreSQL Console and enter the instance list page to view instance information and manage your instances.

    Adjusting instance configurations

    On the Instance List page, click Adjust Configurations in the "Operation" column to upgrade the configuration of a database instance, including its specification and disk capacity.

    Restarting an instance

    On the Instance List page, select the desired instance and click Restart. You can also select multiple instances and restart them in batches.


    • During the restart, the instance cannot be accessed, and existing connections to it will be closed. Please back up your data timely.
    • Restart will fail if there are a large number of business writes and dirty pages. In this case, the instance will return to the status before the restart and can still be accessed.
    • Be sure to restart the instance during off-hours so as to ensure success and reduce potential impact on your business.
