Released: 21 January, 2019
ITRS is pleased to announce the release of Gateway Hub 1.1.x.
This release delivers the updated binaries for Gateway Hub in the ITRS Downloads page.
Gateway Hub is a brand new component in the Geneos ecosystem, providing the foundations for smarter monitoring, improved scalability, and a refreshed modern UI. The main features in this release are:
- Ability to store historical data for all Geneos metrics and events.
- A brand new web-based UI for Gateway Hub Administration.
Historical metric and event data can now be stored in Gateway Hub and retrieved using Active Console 2. This is significantly more reliable than database logging and is designed to handle all metrics being logged, rather than a subset.
Metric and event storage in Gateway Hub also provides the foundation for improved monitoring over the next few releases, including adaptive rules (anomaly detection), automatic baselining, predictive and causal analysis through machine learning.
This release brings the first release of the new web-based UI for Geneos, the Web Console, focusing on administration of Gateway Hub. The Web Console will be expanded upon in future releases to initially complement, and eventually replace, Active Console 2.
Note: These changes are applicable to Early Access customers only.
These are the breaking changes in the current release:
|Issue key||Breaking change description|
|STARK-5233||The unit of measure endpoints have been simplified significantly.|
|STARK-3441||Dataview was previously written using incorrect case (e.g. "dataView") in the REST endpoints. These have been corrected.|
Publishing to Gateway Hub is done using a secured connection.
All publishing Gateway must be reconfigured to use SSL encryption as unsecured connections are no longer supported.
These are the features and enhancements in the current release:
|Issue key||Release description|
|STARK-6565||Bundled SSO Agent upgrades to version 1.3.0.|
|STARK-6538||Increases message throughput due to improved MapR-DB batching strategy.|
|STARK-6344||Gateway Hub configuration can be updated through the command line.|
|STARK-6326||Kafka disk location can be specified as part of the installation parameters.|
|STARK-6316||Better validation when adding units of measure without a locale or text.|
|STARK-6191||Perfmon errors are correctly converted to null.|
|STARK-6167||Keystore password is configurable.|
|STARK-6007||Error codes are updated to make them unique.|
|STARK-5896||The kernel settings
|STARK-5768||Removes the need to store runtime user credentials for normaliserd.|
|STARK-5707||Dataview errors can be filtered by error code.|
|STARK-5591||Ingestion errors can be filtered by partial or full dataview path.|
|STARK-5582||Adds filter and skip parameters to ingestion errors endpoint to allow paging.|
|STARK-5541||Truncation of decimal data when attempting to save as an int generates ingestion errors.|
|STARK-4834||Passwordless SSH is no longer required. During installation, you can interactively enter the password.|
|STARK-4547||The installation is done using an offline package. Gateway Hub nodes do not longer require internet access.|
|STARK-4545||After installation, you can enter a custom SSL certificate.|
|STARK-3637||Web Console is packaged with Gateway Hub.|
|STARK-3020||Retention policies are now specified for metric and events.|
These are the issues we have fixed in the current release:
|Issue key||Release description|
|STARK-6736||Error messages with missing parameters can cause the error endpoints to fail.|
|STARK-6486||Zookeeper status is not reset correctly during factory reset.|
|STARK-6480||Logs entries are stored in UTC.|
|STARK-6290||Validation errors updated with unique titles.|
|STARK-6287||Better validation when uploading invalid licences.|
|STARK-6246||Duplicates unrecognisedField error message suppressed.|
|STARK-6237||Adds command line flag for generating faster diagnostic files.|
|STARK-6042||Resolves race condition causing "Unhandled Error: Failed to create table" log entries.|
|STARK-6039||Processing error messages no longer significantly slows down data ingestion.|
|STARK-6005||Systems with umask set to 077 no longer cause issues during installation.|
|STARK-5886||Simplifies user model to avoid permission issues in persistence.|
|STARK-5839||Fixes to skip and limit parameters for errors endpoint.|
|STARK-5783||Changes to Kafka ISR settings significantly improve resilience.|
|STARK-5751||Ingestion errors are no longer aggregated by dataview row name.|
|STARK-5283||Dataview queries return the most recent results first. If a limit is specified, the least recent results may be truncated.|
|STARK-5203||If a dataview had a computed row that was later removed, then the Gateway will now correctly report hasEnrichedRows as false.|
|STARK-5008||Changes to the casing of certain error parameters means that old error results will be cleared. These are repopulated as new errors are received and will not be an issue.|
|STARK-4965||Fixes an issue causing the error endpoint to return no data.|
|STARK-4957||Log files roll over correctly.|
|STARK-4517||Restarting Gateway Hub no longer causes Kafka to become corrupted under certain circumstances.|
|STARK-3962||Moves Kafka logs to the correct log location.|
These are the known issues affecting this release:
|Issue key||Known issue description|
|STARK-7239||4.10 Gateways are not able to publish to Gateway Hub 1.1. This will be resolved as a matter of priority.|
|STARK-6975||Immediately after an upgrade from 1.0.3 to 1.1, the dataview query API returns empty results. This issue is resolved automatically after a few minutes and normal results will be returned.|
|STARK-6505||Gateway Hub will not correctly handle a dataview defined in a Gateway with columns named sampleTime, netprobeTime, or dataViewId.|
|STARK-4463||Dataview data from additional rows computed in the Gateway is not stored for regular/non-computed columns.|
