Upgrading a Minor Version

GeminiDB Influx can be upgraded by installing patches to improve performance, release new features, or fix bugs.

After a new patch version involving performance improvement, new functions, or problem rectification is released, you can upgrade your instance to the latest version at a proper time based on service requirements.

If a new patch is released, you can upgrade your instance by clicking the upgrade button in the Compatible API column on the Instances page.

  • Upgrade your instance once there is a new patch released.
  • If the database version is a risky version, the system prompts you to upgrade the database patch.
  • Upgrading the minor version of an instance will restart each node of the instance in sequence. When a node is being restarted, its services will be taken over by another node. Each takeover will interrupt services for 5 to 10 seconds. So, perform an upgrade during off-peak hours and enable automatic reconnection so that each node can be reconnected immediately after being restarted.
  • Upgrading basic components takes about 15 minutes. Upgrading data components takes about 1 to 2 minutes, which depends on how many nodes there are.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. In the service list, choose Databases > GeminiDB Influx API.
