Managing Instance Groups

Updated at: Mar 25, 2021 GMT+08:00

Scenarios

Instance groups can be managed on FusionInsight Manager. That is, you can group multiple instances in the same role based on a specified principle, such as the nodes with the same hardware configuration. The modification on the configuration parameters of an instance group applies to all instances in the group.

In a large cluster, instance groups are used to improve the capability of managing instances in batches in the heterogeneous environment. After instances are grouped, the instances can be configured repeatedly to reduce redundant instance configuration items and improve system performance.

Creating an Instance Group

  1. Log in to FusionInsight Manager.
  2. Choose Cluster > Name of the desired cluster > Services.
  3. Click the specified service name on the service management page.
  4. On the displayed page, click the Instance Groups tab.

    Click and configure parameters as prompted.

    Role

    Indicates the role to which an instance group belongs.

    Copy From

    Indicates that the parameter values of a specified instance group are copied to the parameters of a new group. If the value is null, the default values are used for the parameters of the new group.

    • Each instance must belong to only one instance group. When an instance is installed for the first time, it belongs to the instance group Role name-DEFAULT by default.
