Table 1 Function description

SN

Description

1

Displays the name of the current database.

2

Allows you to change databases in the current DB instance.

3

Displays the IP address, port number, and character set of the current DB instance.

4

Allows you to open the SQL window of the current database.

5

Periodically collects metadata such as databases, tables, and fields of the DB instance and stores the data to the databases of DAS.

Advantages:

  • Metadata collection can reduce database queries which may affect the database performance.
  • Metadata collection also improves the search performance for DB instances that contain a large number of tables and supports pagination queries.

Note:

Only structure metadata is collected, which means that user's table data is not included.

6

Database management consists of three functional modules: schema list, object list, and metadata collection.

7

Allows you to perform operations.

Schema List

  1. On the schema tab page, click Create Schema in the upper left corner.
  2. In the displayed dialog box, enter a schema name and click OK.

Object List

Users can create objects such as tables, views, and triggers by using SQL. Currently, only visualized query is supported.

Metadata Collection

In DAS 2.0, metadata of a DB instance such as databases, tables, and files can be automatically collected and stored in the DAS database. In addition, only structural metadata is collected, and the data in your table is not included to protect your data privacy.

  • Metadata collection can reduce database queries which may affect the database performance.
  • Metadata collection also improves the search performance for DB instances that contain a large number of tables and supports pagination queries.
  1. On the Database Management page, click the Metadata Collection tab.
  2. On the displayed page, click Collect to start the collection. You can also stop the collection or view the collection details in the right Operations column.

    • Clear the collected data: Clear the collected metadata, database structure, and table structure.
    • Delete Logs: Deleted logs cannot be recovered. Exercise caution when performing this operation.
