Aerospike Server EE Release Notes

  • 6.0.0.1
    Release Date: May 4, 2022
    • This General Availability release 6.0.0.1 contains all hotfixes deployed during the release candidate cycle.
    • When upgrading to server version 6.0, you must either trim or wipe (zeroize) the Aerospike header on the devices. A modified record storage format was introduced by AER-6513, which adds protection against partially written records during an unclean shutdown.
    • For upgrading, or the unlikely event of downgrading, please refer to Special Upgrades.
    • BREAKING CHANGE: The truncate privilege is now a separate privilege and is no longer under write.
    • The batch operations capability has been made comprehensive. We now fully support batch reads, writes, deletes, and UDF commands.
    • The previously deprecated Predicate Expression API has been removed. Use Aerospike Filter Expressions (added in version 5.2).
    • Service context configuration paxos-single-replica-limit has been removed.
    • Configurations, Metrics, and Server Logs related to Scans are now referred to as Primary Index Queries (pi queries). For example, scan_basic_complete is now referred to as pi_query_long_basic_complete.
    • The jobs info command is now officially deprecated and will continue to be supported through a deprecation period, after which it will be removed. jobs are now redundant with the new secondary index building methods and the following new info commands:
      • query-show replaces query-list and the deprecated scan-show command.
      • query-abort replaces query-kill and the deprecated scan-abort command.
    • The batch-without-digests configuration parameter has been removed.
    • A number of Best Practices will be checked at startup. The Best Practices can be enforced by enabling the new enforce-best-practices configuration item.
    • Several configuration parameters have been renamed or removed. Please refer to Config, Metrics, and Info Changes in Aerospike Database 6.0.
    • Use Prometheus Exporter version 1.2.1 or later to run Prometheus Exporter with this version of Aerospike Server.

    Bug Fixes

    • Enterprise, Federal & Community
      • [AER-6529] - (SINDEX) Garbage collection does not decrement memory_used_sindex_bytes, which may cause erroneous stop-writes or eviction.

    • For upgrading, or the unlikely event of downgrading, please refer to Special Upgrades.
    • The Predicate Expression API is obsolete. The Aerospike Server and Client have scheduled removal with our next major Aerospike Server release. Use Aerospike Filter Expressions (added in version 5.2).
    • The jobs info command is now officially deprecated and will continue to be supported through a deprecation period, after which it will be removed. jobs are now redundant with the new secondary index building methods and the following new info commands:
    • The configuration parameter batch-without-digests, now defaults to true, is deprecated and will be removed in six months. Customers using clients older than a year (around the time of Server 4.9 which introduced batch-without-digests) will now have to explicitly set the batch-without-digests configuration item to false.
    • A number of Best Practices will be checked at startup. The Best Practices can be enforced by enabling the new enforce-best-practices configuration item.
    • The security context configuration items enable-security and enable-ldap have been removed. The Server will not start if either enable-security or enable-ldap is present in the configuration file.
    • Security will now be enabled simply by the presence of the security { } section in the configuration file. Similarly, LDAP will now be enabled simply by the presence of the ldap { } section within the security { } section of the configuration file.
    • To use XDR with ACL auth-mode must be explicitly configured.
    • We build on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8 instead of CentOS 8 when creating rpm packages.
    • Use Prometheus Exporter version 1.2.1 or later to run Prometheus Exporter with this version of Aerospike Server.

    Improvements

    • Enterprise & Community
      • [AER-6484] - (LOGGING) Added a ticker warning for write-commit-level 'master' transactions overloading fabric send queues.

    Bug Fixes

    • Enterprise & Community
      • [AER-6496] - (QUERY) Info commands to show all queries may cause a crash.
    • Enterprise Only
      • [AER-6486] - (STATS) For strong-consistency namespaces, re-replications that time out while queued internally will be reflected in the latency histogram.
      • [AER-6493] - (UDF) The method aerospike:exists() incorrectly returns true for a tombstone.

    Updates

  • 5.6.0.21
    Release Date: April 20, 2022
    • The older Aerospike Connect Outbound versions do not work with Aerospike Server version 5.6 or newer. If you are using Aerospike Connect Outbound, you should upgrade respectively to:
      • Aerospike Connect for JMS - Outbound version 3.0.0 or newer
      • Aerospike Connect for Kafka - Outbound version 4.0.0 or newer
      • Aerospike Connect for Pulsar - Outbound version 2.0.0 or newer
      • XDR Proxy version 1.1.0 or newer
    • In Aerospike Server 5.5 or earlier, a UDF returning a Boolean value as a bin would be converted to 1 or 0. In Aerospike 5.6 or newer the value returns as true or false.
    • Downgrading from Aerospike Database version 5.5 or newer to version 5.4 or version 5.3 or version 5.2 (where XDR bin convergence has been used). Refer to Special Upgrades.
    • Downgrading from Aerospike Database version 5.4 to version 5.3 or version 5.2 (where XDR bin convergence has been used). Refer to Special Upgrades.
    • Downgrading from Aerospike Database version 5.2 or newer to a version previous to 5.2 (where XDR bin shipping has been used). Refer to Special Upgrades.
    • ATTENTION: Debian/Ubuntu users - if python2 is not installed, see the Python Package Dependency for .deb Installers article.
    • Support for the XDR bin-policy value 'only-specified', has been removed. Users of 'only-specified' will likely want to switch to 'changed-and-specified'.
    • Aerospike Server version 5.1 or later requires the operating system distribution's libcurl shared object library.
    • Before upgrading to 5.0.0.4 or later, customers already running 5.0.0.3 in a cluster which is an active XDR destination (i.e. an XDR destination also acting as a source XDR or that may in the future act as a source XDR), may want to consider stopping all XDR traffic to the cluster. (Enterprise Only)
      • In the unlikely case of an upgraded 5.0.0.4 or newer node going down while 5.0.0.3 nodes are still running, those nodes would mistakenly ship XDR writes even if forward has not been explicitly enabled.
      • Enterprise Licensees may contact Aerospike Support for any questions before upgrading.
    • Cross-Datacenter Replication (XDR) running in Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer can only connect to XDR destination clusters running versions 4.1 or newer.
    • All nodes must be upgraded to Aerospike Server version 4.9.0.7 or newer. Please upgrade to the latest 4.9.0.x release prior to upgrading to Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer.
      • Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer will not form a cluster with version 4.8 nodes or earlier.
      • When upgrading the Aerospike Server refer to the Special Upgrades documentation.
    • The Aerospike Server will not start if obsolete configuration parameters are set in the Aerospike configuration file (aerospike.conf).
    • As of Aerospike Server 4.9 scans are correct. The scan priority, fail_on_cluster_change, and scan percent options, that were deprecated in Aerospike Server 4.9 are removed in Aerospike Server 5.6.
    • ATTENTION: As of Aerospike Server version 4.9, expirations and evictions are disabled by default.
    • The Predicate Expression API will be removed in the Aerospike Server version 6.0 release. Use Aerospike Filter Expressions (added in version 5.2).
    • We have removed support for Ubuntu 16.04.
    • Use Prometheus Exporter version 1.2.1 or later to run Prometheus Exporter with this version of Aerospike Server.

    Bug Fixes

    • Enterprise & Community
      • [AER-6526] - (SINDEX) Truncating a namespace or set with a secondary index, and more than 2 billion records per node, may overflow a garbage collection queue and crash.
    • Enterprise Only
      • [AER-6527] - (XDR) Dynamically removing seed nodes while trying to connect may cause connections to be skipped or cause a crash.

    Updates

  • 5.4.0.23
    Release Date: January 13, 2022
    • Downgrading from Aerospike Database version 5.4 or newer to version 5.3 or version 5.2 (where XDR bin convergence has been used). Refer to Special Upgrades.
    • Downgrading from Aerospike Database version 5.2 or newer to a version previous to 5.2 (where XDR bin shipping has been used). Refer to Special Upgrades.
    • ATTENTION: Debian/Ubuntu users - if python2 is not installed, see the Python Package Dependency for .deb Installers article.
    • Support for the XDR bin-policy value 'only-specified', has been removed. Users of 'only-specified' will likely want to switch to 'changed-and-specified'.
    • Aerospike Server version 5.1 or later requires the operating system distribution's libcurl shared object library.
    • Before upgrading to 5.0.0.4 or later, customers already running 5.0.0.3 in a cluster which is an active XDR destination (i.e. an XDR destination also acting as a source XDR or that may in the future act as a source XDR), may want to consider stopping all XDR traffic to the cluster. (Enterprise Only)
      • In the unlikely case of an upgraded 5.0.0.4 or newer node going down while 5.0.0.3 nodes are still running, those nodes would mistakenly ship XDR writes even if forward has not been explicitly enabled.
      • Enterprise Licensees may contact Aerospike Support for any questions before upgrading.
    • Cross-Datacenter Replication (XDR) running in Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer can only connect to XDR destination clusters running versions 4.1 or newer.
    • All nodes must be upgraded to Aerospike Server version 4.9.0.7 or newer. Please upgrade to the latest 4.9.0.x release prior to upgrading to Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer.
      • Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer will not form a cluster with version 4.8 nodes or earlier.

    Known Issues

  • 5.3.0.2
    Release Date: December 10, 2020
    • Downgrading from Aerospike Database version 5.2 or newer to a version previous to 5.2 (where XDR bin shipping has been used). Refer to Special Upgrades.
    • The Cross-Datacenter Replication (XDR) feature now includes the ability to filter using Expressions.
    • ATTENTION: Debian/Ubuntu users - if python2 is not installed, see the Python Package Dependency for .deb Installers article.
    • Support for the XDR bin-policy value 'only-specified', has been removed. Users of 'only-specified' will likely want to switch to 'changed-and-specified'.
    • Aerospike Server version 5.1 or later requires the operating system distribution's libcurl shared object library.
    • Before upgrading to 5.0.0.4 or later, customers already running 5.0.0.3 in a cluster which is an active XDR destination (i.e. an XDR destination also acting as a source XDR or that may in the future act as a source XDR), may want to consider stopping all XDR traffic to the cluster. (Enterprise Only)
      • In the unlikely case of an upgraded 5.0.0.4 or newer node going down while 5.0.0.3 nodes are still running, those nodes would mistakenly ship XDR writes even if forward has not been explicitly enabled.
      • Enterprise Licensees may contact Aerospike Support for any questions before upgrading.
    • Cross-Datacenter Replication (XDR) running in Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer can only connect to XDR destination clusters running versions 4.1 or newer.
    • All nodes must be upgraded to Aerospike Server version 4.9.0.7 or newer. Please upgrade to the latest 4.9.0.x release prior to upgrading to Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer.
      • Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer will not form a cluster with version 4.8 nodes or earlier.
      • When upgrading the Aerospike Server refer to the Special Upgrades documentation.
    • The Aerospike Server will not start if obsolete configuration parameters are set in the Aerospike configuration file (aerospike.conf).
    • ATTENTION: As of Aerospike Server version 4.9, expirations and evictions are disabled by default.

    • For the info command latency support has been deprecated and will be removed in the next major release.
      • Please use the new replacement info command latencies to track all latency histograms.
    • Aerospike Server version 5.1 or later requires the operating system distribution's libcurl shared object library.
    • Before upgrading to 5.0.0.4 or later, customers already running 5.0.0.3 in a cluster which is an active XDR destination (i.e. an XDR destination also acting as a source XDR or that may in the future act as a source XDR), may want to consider stopping all XDR traffic to the cluster. (Enterprise Only)
      • In the unlikely case of an upgraded 5.0.0.4 or newer node going down while 5.0.0.3 nodes are still running, those nodes would mistakenly ship XDR writes even if forward has not been explicitly enabled.
      • Enterprise Licensees may contact Aerospike Support for any questions before upgrading.
    • Cross-Datacenter Replication (XDR) running in Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer can only connect to XDR destination clusters running versions 4.1 or newer.
    • All nodes must be upgraded to Aerospike Server version 4.9.0.7 or newer. Please upgrade to the latest 4.9.0.x release prior to upgrading to Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer.
      • Aerospike Server version 5.0 or newer will not form a cluster with version 4.8 nodes or earlier.
      • When upgrading the Aerospike Server refer to the Special Upgrades documentation.
    • The Aerospike Server will not start if obsolete configuration parameters are set in the Aerospike configuration file (aerospike.conf).
    • ATTENTION: As of Aerospike Server version 4.9, expirations and evictions are disabled by default.

    • Before upgrading to 5.0.0.4 or later, customers already running 5.0.0.3 in a cluster which is an active XDR destination (i.e. an XDR destination also acting as a source XDR or that may in the future act as a source XDR), may want to consider stopping all XDR traffic to the cluster. (Enterprise Only)
      • In the unlikely case of an upgraded 5.0.0.4 or newer node going down while 5.0.0.3 nodes are still running, those nodes would mistakenly ship XDR writes even if forward has not been explicitly enabled.
      • Enterprise Licensees may contact Aerospike Support for any questions before upgrading.
    • Cross-Datacenter Replication (XDR) running in Aerospike Server version 5.0 can only connect to XDR destination clusters running versions 4.1 or newer.
    • All nodes must be upgraded to Aerospike Server version 4.9.0.7 or newer. Please upgrade to the latest 4.9.0.x release prior to upgrading to Aerospike Server version 5.0.
      • Aerospike Server version 5.0 will not form a cluster with version 4.8 nodes or earlier.
      • When upgrading the Aerospike Server refer to the Special Upgrades documentation.
    • The Aerospike Server will not start if obsolete configuration parameters are set in the Aerospike configuration file (aerospike.conf).
    • ATTENTION: As of Aerospike Server version 4.9, expirations and evictions are disabled by default.
    • CentOS Linux 8 End of Life is scheduled for December 2021.

    • Enterprise Only
      • [AER-6235] - (XDR) If DC context configuration item tls-name is not set, a TLS name in DC context configuration item node-address-port will cause a crash.
      • [AER-6236] - (XDR) DC throughput stat is always zero when retrieved via info command.
      • [AER-6237] - (XDR) Rare race between replication and migration may cause XDR submission at replica to fail.

    Known Issues

  • 5.0.0.4
    Release Date: May 21, 2020
    • Before upgrading to 5.0.0.4 or later, customers already running 5.0.0.3 in a cluster which is an active XDR destination (i.e. an XDR destination also acting as a source XDR or that may in the future act as a source XDR), may want to consider stopping all XDR traffic to the cluster. (Enterprise Only)
      • In the unlikely case of an upgraded 5.0.0.4 or newer node going down while 5.0.0.3 nodes are still running, those nodes would mistakenly ship XDR writes even if forward has not been explicitly enabled.
      • Enterprise Licensees may contact Aerospike Support for any questions before upgrading.

    Updates

  • 4.9.0.37
    Release Date: April 4, 2022
    • ATTENTION: As of Aerospike Server version 4.9, expirations and evictions are disabled by default.
    • The Aerospike Server will not start If the value of default-ttl is non-zero and nsup-period is zero (the default).
    • Record bins containing (collection data type) Ordered Lists that had operations performed under Aerospike Server versions 3.16.0.1-3.16.0.5 could be incompatible with server versions 4.6 or later due to stricter CDT validation. Also, Unordered Lists created with UDFs under server versions 3.16.0.1-4.5.3.15 could be marked as ordered, even if the application did not explicitly specify this, and would also be incompatible with server versions 4.6 or later. However induced, the incompatibility could also block XDR shipping. The Aerospike CDT Validation Tool is available in the Aerospike Tools 3.24.1 or newer release to identify -and if possible correct- such records. Aerospike recommends the validation tool be run on all namespaces that created or modified List CDTs under a pre-4.6 server. Refer to the Aerospike CDT Validation Tool documentation for steps necessary to run the tool and interpret the output.
    • Support added for HyperLogLog (HLL) probabilistic data types.
      • Clusters connected using Cross Datacenter Replication (XDR) all clusters must have been upgraded to Aerospike Server 4.9 prior to using the HyperLogLog (HLL) data type.
      • Before downgrading from Aerospike Server 4.9 all HyperLogLog (HLL) bins must be removed by the application.
      • During the unlikely case of a downgrade the drives would need to be wiped. It is advised to review your Aerospike Server 4.9 environment prior to implementing the usage of HyperLogLog (HLL) data type bins.
