How to Upgrade

The TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.9 tile is available with the release of Ops Manager v2.9. To use the TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.9 tile, you must install Ops Manager v2.9 or later and VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs) v2.9 or later.

New Features in TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.9

TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.9 includes the following major features:

Route Emitters Communicate with NATS Over TLS

Route Emitters for Windows Diego Cells send messages to NATS over TLS. This allows your TAS for VMs [Windows] deployment to meet security compliance requirements while relying less on security policy exceptions or add-ons. TLS encryption from Route Emitters to NATS cannot be disabled.

For more information about Route Emitters and TLS encryption, see TLS to Apps and Other Back End Services in HTTP Routing.

Configure App Log Rate Limit (Beta)

You can limit the number of log lines each app instance in your isolation segment generates per second by configuring the App log rate limit (beta) section in the App Containers pane of the Isolation Segment tile.

This feature is disabled by default. Enabling this feature prevents app instances from overloading the Loggregator Agent with logs, so the Loggregator Agent does not drop logs for other app instances. Enabling this feature also prevents apps from reporting inaccurate app metrics in the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) or increasing the CPU usage on the Diego Cell VM.

For more information, see Assign a Tile to an Isolation Segment in Windows Diego Cells in Isolation Segments.

Known Issues

There are no known issues in TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.9.
