Deleting a Cluster

If you do not need to use a cluster, perform the operations in this section to delete it.

Impact on the System

Deleted clusters cannot be recovered. Additionally, you cannot access user data and automated snapshots in a deleted cluster because the data and snapshots are automatically deleted. If you delete a cluster, its manual snapshots will not be deleted.

Deleting a Cluster

  1. Log in to the GaussDB(DWS) management console.

  2. Click image1 in the upper left corner of the management console to select a region.

  3. On the Clusters page, locate the cluster to be deleted.

  4. In the row of a cluster, choose More > Delete.


  5. In the displayed dialog box, confirm the deletion. You can determine whether to perform the following operations:

    • Create a snapshot for the cluster.

      If the cluster status is normal, you can click Create Snapshot. In the dialog box that is displayed, enter the snapshot name and click OK to create a snapshot for the cluster to be deleted. After the snapshot is created, go back to the Clusters page and delete the cluster.

    • Release the EIP bound to the cluster.

      If the cluster is bound with an EIP, you can click Release the EIP bound to the cluster to release the EIP of the cluster to be deleted.


  6. Click Yes. The cluster status in the cluster list will change to Deleting, and the cluster deletion progress will be displayed.

    If a cluster to be deleted uses an automatically created security group that is not used by other clusters, the security group will be automatically deleted with the cluster.
