Feature Enhancement Best Practices

In the new version of the DMS, businesses and individual users have the flexibility to manage multiple database resources running in different environments simultaneously.

  • The control mode of the instance can be set to “Flexible Management” for instances that do not require strict control, such as DEV test environments

    • For some people, the “login” permission is granted to the instance. After logging in with the account key, you can directly perform various management operations of the database, including data visual query and modification, table structure visual viewing and modification, etc.
  • For instances where stability needs to be guaranteed, such as in the Linked Test Environment, the control mode of the instances can be set to “Stable Change”.

    • For some people, the “login” permission is granted to the instance. After logging in with the account key, you can directly perform various management operations of the database, including data visual query and modification, table structure visual viewing and modification, etc.
    • Data and structure changes can be submitted through various functions such as ticket entry in data scheme. The submitted tasks will provide task timing scheduling capability, lock detection before change to avoid lock contention causing instance session blocking phenomenon, thread_running value detection before change to avoid excessive number of active sessions causing excessive database load affecting production service, sleep after change to ensure no delay in master backup replication and binlog consumption application.
  • To guarantee data security and change process management and control of production environment, set the control mode of instances to “Security Collaboration”.

    • The personal privilege can be detailed to the database, table, field level control, and the activation and authorization must be approved by a designated process with designated personnel before it takes effect.
    • For the structural changes made by personnel to the database, you can implement the automatic constraints of the table structure design specification in the enterprise through “Structure Design”, and then release the changes to other environments after the test environment is complete, to ensure the structural consistency between the various environments, and at the same time support the lockless table structure changes.(Note: For test environment that needs to ensure the R&D process, the control mode needs to be set to “Security Collaboration” to prevent personnel from directly changing the environment at will, resulting in uncontrolled versions.)
    • The “Data Change” can be used to implement syntax correctness check, affect line number check, change stability guarantee, and various operation syntax and approval rules can be flexibly defined according to the instances for the data change operation of personnel.
  • Note: Currently, the DTS table-level replication link will not be interrupted by implementing a lockless table structure change through DMS.

    Restrictions: Only applicable for new DTS table replication links created after February 14, 2020, or links created before February 14, 2020, but restarted after February 14, 2020, DTS table-level replication links will not be broken.
