This topic describes how to view endpoints of a PolarDB cluster compatible with Oracle and introduces primary endpoints and private endpoints.
- Log on to the ApsaraDB for PolarDB console.
- Find the target cluster and click the cluster ID.
- In the Connection Information section, view the endpoints.
|Type||Description||Supported network type|
|Primary endpoint||A primary endpoint is always destined for the primary node and supports read and write operations. If the primary node fails, the primary endpoint is automatically switched to the read-only node that is promoted to the primary node.||Private network|
|Primary node endpoint (not recommended)||The endpoint of the primary node. We recommend that you do not connect directly to the primary node because the node becomes unavailable when it fails.||Private network|
|Read-only node endpoint (not recommended)||The endpoint of the read-only node. We recommend that you do not connect directly to the read-only node because the node becomes unavailable when it fails.||Private network|
