[TiDB Usage Environment] Production Environment
Can the TiFlash node be taken offline in a production TiDB cluster? After removing TiFlash, can the cluster continue to be expanded online?

Refer to the official documentation and follow the instructions.

The main point is to adjust the number of TiFlash replicas for the data table to be no greater than the number of TiFlash nodes after scaling down in order to scale down successfully.
After scaling down, you can scale up online.

Don’t use 7.4, use 7.5.

The person above is right, 7.4 is a test version, don’t use it.

| username: ShawnYan | Original post link

7.4 is the DMR version, and 7.5 is the LTS version. It is recommended to use the LTS version in production environments.

| username: TiDBer_yBunUeUc | Original post link

Alright, alright, let’s immediately upgrade to 7.5 and get going.

| username: kelvin | Original post link

7.5 is the correct answer.

Expansion is possible.

Then I’ll quickly upgrade and try version 7.5.
