Change configuration

Last Updated: Jan 22, 2018

ApsaraDB for Redis provides two billing methods: Subscription and Pay-As-You-Go. The latter can be converted to the former. The instance configurations of the two modes can be changed.

Background

Changing instance configuration incurs a change in charges. For more information about the billing standard, see ApsaraDB for Redis pricing details.

Consideration

  • Pay-As-You-Go instances support real-time configuration upgrade/downgrade.

  • Subscription instances only allows configuration upgrade during service period. You can degrade instance configuration when conducting a renewal.

    For example, if an 2 GB master-slave instance expires on December 31st, 2017, you can only upgrade the instance configuration before it expires. If you renew the instance after expiration, you can downgrade it to a 1 GB master-slave instance, and this new configuration takes effect on Jan 1st, 2018.

  • Cluster instances and master-slave instances support mutual configuration upgrade/downgrade.

  • During configuration change, instances may flash off within a second, so make sure you run upgrading during off-peak hours.

Procedure (Pay-As-You-Go)

  1. Log on to the Redis console.

  2. Locate the target instance. Click Change Configuration.

  3. On the Change Configuration page, select required resetting and click Confirm Change.

    It notifies you with a successful resetting and takes an immediate effect upon resetting configuration.

Procedure (Subscription)

  1. Log on to the Redis console.

  2. Locate the target instance. Click Change Configuration.

    Note: Subscription instances only allow configuration upgrading.

  3. On the Change Configuration page, select required configuration and click Confirm Change.

  4. Enter a page for payment after submission, select your expected billing method, and click Confirm Subscription.

    Finally, you are redirected to a page confirming successful payment.
