Updating the OS of an Instance

To improve database performance and security, the OS of a GeminiDB Influx instance needs to be updated in a timely manner.

Every time you upgrade the kernel version of your instance, GeminiDB Influx determines whether to update the OS and selects the right cold patch to upgrade the OS if necessary.

Updating the OS does not change the DB instance version or other information.

In addition, GeminiDB Influx installs hot patches as required to fix major OS vulnerabilities within the maintenance window you specified.
