GaussDB(DWS) provides the intelligent O&M feature to help users quickly and efficiently execute O&M tasks. Intelligent O&M selects a proper time window and concurrency to complete specified tasks based on the cluster load. During O&M tasks, intelligent O&M monitors user service changes and promptly adapts task execution policies to minimize the impact on user services. Periodic tasks and one-off tasks are supported, and you can configure the time window as required.

Intelligent O&M ensures high availability. When the cluster is abnormal, failed O&M tasks will be retried. If some steps of an O&M task cannot be completed due to an abnormal cluster, the failed steps will be skipped for cost saving.

The intelligent O&M page consists of the following parts:

  • Common configuration of O&M tasks: Currently, you can only configure Maximum number of concurrent O&M tasks in the VacuumFull user table. This configuration takes effect on all the VACUUM FULL tasks of user tables.
  • Information about ongoing O&M tasks. (Currently, only VACUUM tasks are displayed. If disk space is insufficient because of table bloating, you can vacuum tables. For details, see Performance Deterioration Due to Table Bloating).
    • Frequent table creation and deletion can lead to table bloating. To free up space, you can run the VACUUM command on system catalogs.
    • Frequently update and delete operations can lead to table bloating. To free up space, you can run the VACUUM or VACUUM FULL command on system catalogs.
  • O&M details: O&M Plan and O&M Status. O&M Plan displays the basic information about all O&M tasks, and O&M Status displays the running status.

  • This feature is supported only in 8.1.3 or later.
  • The intelligent O&M function is not supported in hybrid data warehouses (standalone mode).
  • Only cluster 8.1.3 and later versions support the common configuration module for O&M tasks. For earlier versions, contact technical support to upgrade them.
