Now Available: Tungsten v6.1.17 Release

We are pleased to announce that Tungsten Clustering and Tungsten Replicator GA Versions 6.1.17 are now available for customers to download.

This release contains a number of minor bug fixes and improvements. Here are a few highlights:

  • Added the ability to turn auto recovery on or off dynamically, removing the need to run tpm update. (CT-1088)
  • The cctrl.log file is now accessible from the $CONTINUENT_ROOT/service_logs directory (CT-1727)
  • The setting connector-reset-when-affinity-back is now available with proxy mode (CT-1763)
    • This setting forces reconnection of clients to datasources with the configured affinity when they become available. Learn more about it in the Docs.
  • The tpm connector command now properly passes the -e arguments to the mysql command (CT-1816)
  • Fixed an issue when using Parallel Apply that would show a NullPointerException in case an event could either not be found or be corrupted in THL. This will now display a correct message: Missing or corrupted event from storage (CT-1722)
  • IPv6 host addresses are now fully supported (CT-1537)
    • By default, IPv4 is enabled. You may change this default setting with the following config property: prefer-ip-stack=”6”
  • Replaced the official log4j library with a secured version in which all vulnerable classes have been removed; this prevents exposing the software following a user misconfiguration of the log4j properties (CT-1810)
  • The tpm diag command has been improved (CT-1718, CT-1792)
  • Fixed an issue when the Manager would wait longer than the timeout for replicator purge on a failover (CT-1733)
  • Added more debug information for detecting possible hanging connections while a THL client connects to the THL server. Also added socket timeout for the connection initialization (CT-1760)

Note that all of these improvements are also available in Tungsten v7.0 or will be available in the next release, Version 7.0.1. Please read the full list of improvements including minor changes in behavior in the Tungsten v6.1.17 Release Notes:
