Scale-In with MariaDB Xpand
This page is part of MariaDB's MariaDB Documentation.
The parent of this page is: Scale-In and Scale-Out with MariaDB Xpand
MariaDB Xpand can be scaled in, which reduces the number of Xpand nodes in the cluster.
Some use cases for scale-in:
To reduce operating costs following a peak event (i.e., following Cyber-Monday).
To allocate servers for other purposes.
To remove failing hardware. (See
ALTER CLUSTER DROPto drop a permanently failed node.)
