You can upgrade the synchronization topology of a data synchronization task from one-way to two-way in the DTS console.

Prerequisites

  • The types of source and destination databases of the data synchronization task are both MySQL.
  • The synchronization topology of the data synchronization task is one-way synchronization.
  • The status of the data synchronization task is Synchronizing.

Note

  • You can only upgrade the synchronization topology from one-way to two-way. You cannot downgrade the synchronization topology from two-way to one-way.
  • The upgrade operation causes data synchronization latency of about 5 seconds. We recommend that you perform this operation during off-peak hours.

Billing

  • Subscription instance
    Total fee for upgrading the synchronization topology = (Daily fee of the instance after upgrade ‒ Daily fee of the instance before upgrade) × (Subscription expiration date ‒ Upgrade date)
    Note The daily fee of an instance after the upgrade depends on the number of remaining days from the upgrade date to the expiration date.
    • If the number of remaining days is less than 300 days, the fee of the instance after upgrade equals the fee offered by monthly subscription.
    • If the number of remaining days is greater than or equal to 300 days, the fee of the instance after upgrade equals the fee offered by annual subscription.
  • Pay-as-you-go instance

    After you upgrade the synchronization topology of a pay-as-you-go instance, you are still billed on an hourly basis. The fees are calculated based on the instance specification.
