    Tencent Cloud Custom Commands

    Through VIP encapsulation, Memory Edition (Cluster Architecture) delivers a user experience in cluster mode comparable to the standalone edition, making it much easier for use in different scenarios. However, in Ops scenarios, each node in the cluster needs to be accessed frequently to locate exceptions. In this case, the custom command feature can add a node ID parameter to the parameter list of the original command in the format of COMMAND arg1 arg2 ... [node ID] in order to easily get the information of the specified node. The node ID can be obtained from the Node Management page in the TencentDB for Redis console or through the cluster nodes command.

    • persistence: The information of RDB and AOF.

    • cpu: The information of CPU usage.
