  • If corruption is detected in an NNTBS shard, offline it instead of exiting with a fatal error.

      Error committing txn: <return code> (error description)
      Error putting to lmdb cursor: <return code> (error description)
      

      If these logs appear, contact Circonus Support for help in remediating the issue.

  • Fix crashes when trying to use graphite find on a node that is not participating in any topology.

  • Performance improvements to the reconstitute process - startup is now considerably faster.
  • Clean up internal status files when a reconstitute completes.
  • Node IDs in the Topology UI tab are now clickable, and lead to that node’s UI.

Function Removal Notice

Metric Search v2 and Metric Clusters have been deprecated for some time. We plan to remove these deprecated functions soon for the SaaS site, and in the subsequent Inside release. This will affect CAQL checks as well as CAQL Datapoints on graphs. The UI will now show users a warning when one of the deprecated functions is used. Circonus offers a more powerful tag-search feature, exposed as find() in CAQL.

  • Fix reconstitute issue where it was possible to try to write to a transaction after the transaction was committed, leading to potential data corruption.
  • Allow for whitespace before (...) and {...} in CAQL function invocations.
  • Allow forcing the reconstitute process to skip specific nodes.
  • Add a graphite translate endpoint to assist graphite -> CAQL translation.
  • Add accounting stats for metrics_db cache.

Pre-upgrade Notice

The 2021-03-22 release changed the way CAQL metrics are labeled. Previously, if the label function was not used, resulting metrics would be named output[N]. As of the 2021-03-22 release, CAQL metrics are labeled based on the computation that led to the particular output.

This can cause the names of existing metrics to change, if no explicit label was given in the CAQL expression. To avoid this, run the following script on your “hub” node prior to updating if you are on a release earlier than 2021-03-22:

/www/bin/inside/label_caql_metrics.pl

This will locate active CAQL checks across all accounts that do not have explicit labels, and configure them to preserve the existing output[N] names. It is idempotent, so it is safe to run it multiple times if necessary.

  • Fix potential crash when fetching metrics with very large names.
  • Fix potential deadlock in raw database rollups.
  • Update artmap file version from 1 to 2. Metric artmap files (cached tag-search indexes) will regenerate upon updating to this version, increasing search accuracy. This will cause the first service restart after upgrading to this version to be slower than normal. Take care during update not to have too many nodes restart at the same time.

Function Removal Notice

Metric Search v2 and Metric Clusters have been deprecated for some time. We plan to remove these deprecated functions soon for the SaaS site, and in the subsequent Inside release. This will affect CAQL checks as well as CAQL Datapoints on graphs. The UI will now show users a warning when one of the deprecated functions is used. Circonus offers a more powerful tag-search feature, exposed as find() in CAQL.

  • Improvements to activity tracking accuracy.
  • Added optional logging and increased error reporting for raw shard rollups and deletes.
  • Improve accuracy when compacting metricsdb by accounting for out-of-order surrogates arriving.
  • histogram:count* and histogram:rate* CAQL functions now work on sub-minute periods.
  • histogram:count* CAQL functions now return raw counts instead of per-minute values.
  • histogram:rate* CAQL functions now take an option named period to specify the denominator units (default: per second).
  • histogram:count_bucket and histogram:rate_bucket have been renamed histogram:count_bin and histogram:rate_bin, respectively.
  • [raw_ingestor] Performance improvements when sending data to jlog.
  • Reconstitute process now pulls activity data from the surrogate db rather than relying on raw data to fill it in. This will prevent the possible loss of activity data.

fault_detection

Version: 0.1.1610649467 (13af349)

GoAPI

Related roles: api

Version: 0.8.17

  • Changes the way metric search handles category-only v3 search queries, such as: and(component). Previously these were sent to IRONdb as: and(component:*), now the query will be sent unchanged.
  • Corrects an error in metric lookup by ID query creation causing searches for metrics containing the " character to fail.
  • Changes the behavior of CORS headers for the API and proxy servers to match the behavior of the Perl API.
  • Corrects an error in metric lookup by ID url parsing which caused the % character to be handled incorrectly.
  • Corrects how /metric endpoint handles requests with the count_only query parameter.
  • Corrects an issue causing IRONdb proxy error messages to contain unreadable messages.
  • Fix errors that occur when memcache operations fail.
  • Corrects a bug that could cause server panics if no memcache servers were assigned in the configuration.
  • Fixes an error that would allow certain values to break db queries with the order parameter on API search endpoints.
  • Corrects an error that occurs when metric search operation contain multiple terms containing only tag categories and not tag values.
  • Corrects how the db.Stats() wait_duration metric data is reported.
  • Corrects an error with metric search query parsing of search terms containing a tag category but not a tag value.
  • Allows the parse_only query parameter to work using the regular /metric endpoint.
  • Contains goapi implementation of the graph service.
  • Query parser errors will now return a 400 status code instead of an incorrect 500 status code.

Hooper

Version: 0.1.1609887173 (4921f87)

  • (Breaking change) Replace the obsolete nad host agent with the current version of circonus-agent on all systems managed by Hooper. The format of metrics emitted by circonus-agent has changed, and now uses Stream Tags. Any existing checks/rules against nad on these hosts may need to be adjusted or replaced.
  • Fix bug in config-check with the ca role primary attribute.
  • stratcon: Enable tuning of timeouts for ingestion into IRONdb. This includes both TCP connection timeouts (connecttimeout) and overall transaction timeout (timeout). Values are in milliseconds. Deprecate the previous irondb_put_concurrency attribute in favor of a new irondb_tuning object, which can contain any of three keys:
    "irondb_tuning": {
      "timeout": 8000,
      "connecttimeout": 1000,
      "put_concurrency": 50
    }
    

    See site.json stratcon attributes for more details. Reducing IRONdb timeouts may improve ingestion throughput by allowing stratcon to move on more quickly from poorly-performing IRONdb nodes. However, setting timeouts too low could negatively impact ingestion as well.
