ApsaraDB for Redis allows you to manually restart or rebuild a proxy server. This way, you can perform real-time disaster recovery drills. You can also perform operations and maintenance (O&M) when the service is unavailable or a high latency occurs. This topic describes how to restart or rebuild a proxy server.


The ApsaraDB for Redis instance must meet the following requirements:


Proxy restart and rebuild may result in transient disconnections, which affect existing connections. Make sure that your applications can automatically reconnect to the proxy server. We recommend that you restart or rebuild a proxy server during off-peak hours.

  3. On the Instances page, click the Instance ID of the instance.
