Visualized operations on Linux instances

Last Updated: Jun 05, 2019

This section describes how to use Data Management Service (DMS) to perform visualized operations on Linux instances.


When managing a user-created database, you may need to switch between DMS and other clients to perform operations on the instance that hosts the database. This may require more than one client, which increases the costs of user-created database management.


DMS supports multiple features for user-created databases, as well as relational databases and NoSQL databases. DMS also provides a visualized interface for Linux instances that host the user-created databases.

  • Errors may occur when you switch between multiple screens on a client. By using the split terminal feature of DMS, you can split the terminal into multiple screens to simplify your operation.

  • Using the local download/upload feature to copy files from instance to instance is time-consuming and complex. By using the file management feature of DMS, you can quickly copy files from instance to instance.

  • Applying changes instance by instance is time-consuming. Moreover, you may miss some instances. By using the multi-client screen feature of DMS, you can select multiple instances to execute commands at the same time and view the execution results.

  • Network traffic information is easy to collect. However, it is difficult to locate the target thread when the bandwidth is exhausted. By using the real-time monitoring feature of DMS, you can view the network traffic for each thread, in order to quickly troubleshoot issues.
