What Should I Pay Attention to When Using GaussDB?

  1. DB instance OSs are invisible to you. Your applications can access a database only through an IP address and a port.
  2. The backup files stored in OBS and the ECS used by GaussDB are invisible to you. They are visible only in the GaussDB instance management system.
  3. Before viewing the instance list, ensure that the current region is the same as the region where the instance is purchased.
  4. After purchasing GaussDB instances, you do not need to perform basic database O&M operations, such as applying HA and security patches. However, you must still pay attention to whether:
    1. The CPU, IOPS, and storage space are abundant for the GaussDB instances. If any of these becomes insufficient, you will have to change the CPU/memory specifications or scale up the storage.
    2. The performance of the GaussDB instance is adequate, a large number of slow SQL queries exist, SQL statements need to be optimized, or if any indexes are redundant or missing.
