Emergency Channel

Updated at: May 14, 2020 GMT+08:00


  • Emergency Channel
    1. If the maximum number of sessions for an instance has been reached and the instance cannot be logged in to, you can view and kill unnecessary sessions through the emergency channel.
    2. Only RDS MySQL databases support emergency channel currently. Self-built databases on ECSs and instances whose status is creating, frozen, and abnormal do not support this function.
    3. Use this function in urgent conditions. All your kill operations will be recorded in logs.
    4. If your instance can be logged in to on the DAS console, log in to the instance and perform desired operations through Real-Time Sessions & Performance.
    5. Sessions of sensitive users, like rdsadmin, rdsbackup, and rdsmetric, cannot be killed.
