Managing Database Clusters
MC allows you to monitor multiple databases on one or more clusters at once. MC administrators can see and manage all databases and clusters monitored by MC, while non-administrative MC users see only databases on which they have been assigned the appropriate access levels.
Depending on your access level, the database and cluster-related management operations you can perform through MC include:
- Create an empty database in an existing cluster.
- Create a cluster and database on AWS or on-premise.
- Import an existing database/cluster into the MC interface.
- Start the database, unless it is already running (green).
- Stop the database, if no users are connected.
Remove the database from the MC interface.
Remove does not drop the database. A Remove operation leaves it in the cluster, hidden from the UI. To add the database back to the MC interface, import it using the IP address of any cluster node. A Remove operation also stops metrics gathering on that database, but statistics gathering automatically resumes after you re-import.
- Drop the database after you ensure no users are connected. Drop is a permanent action that drops the database from the cluster.
In databases and clusters created using Management Console with Provisioning, AWS instance operations are available from MC, like stop, start, reboot and terminate. These AWS operations can be performed on the whole cluster or one instance at a time. See the sections Managing a Cluster on AWS Resources and Managing AWS Instances sections in Viewing and Managing Your Cluster.
