Concurrent Operations on Autonomous Database

Describes the actions that cause Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console to ask you to confirm pausing or canceling a concurrent operation.

When you initiate certain operations that take some time to complete, including scaling the system, scaling the OCPUs count or storage up or down, these operations do not prevent you from performing other operations. For example, database connections, database operations, and most Autonomous Database actions proceed normally while you scale the system. However, certain database lifecycle management actions such as stopping the database have an impact on concurrent long-running operations.

For some actions a confirmation dialog displays to let you know when a concurrent operation is active. This allows you to proceed or to cancel the operation. For example, while stopping Autonomous Database you see a message such as the following:

Manage Scaling with Concurrent Operations

Describes the impact on scaling operations when you initiate certain actions during an ongoing scaling request.

Action Description
Stop

Stop pauses scaling. The scaling restarts when the database starts.

Restart

Restart pauses scaling. The scaling restarts when the database starts.

Restore

Restore pauses scaling. The scaling restarts when the restore completes if resources allow.

Switchover

Switchover pauses scaling. The scaling restarts when the switchover completes. The scaling also occurs on the standby database after the switchover.

Failover

Failover pauses scaling. The scaling restarts when the failover completes. The scaling also occurs on the standby database if it is available after the failover.

Terminate

Scaling stops and the database is terminated.

Change Database Mode Read-Write or Read-Only

A mode change pauses scaling. The scaling restarts when the database starts after the mode change completes.
