* This refers to the sum of the retention period for all the automatic backups of all the DB Systems in your tenancy. For example, if there are two DB Systems in your tenancy and both have automatic backup set up, with one having a retention period of 5 days and another having a retention period of 7 days, the Sum of DB System Backup Retention Days will be 12.

** During a free trial, when the total outbound data transfer from the DB Systems exceeds the daily limit, connection to DB Systems will be blocked for the rest of the day. At midnight in UTC, the daily outbound data transfer is reset and connections are unblocked.


Even when connections to DB Systems are blocked, you can continue to use the HeatWave Console.
