LATEST VERSION: 1.1 - CHANGELOG
Redis for PCF v1.8

Release Notes

Redis for PCF v1.8.6

September 22, 2017

Bug Fixes

  • Lua Scripting is disabled by default for the on-demand service. It was previously enabled by default. Pivotal recommends that Lua Scripting be disabled.

  • Allows for the on-demand broker resource to be set to 0 or 1. This eases the ability of Operators to avoid setting up the on-demand service.

Compatibility

  • Compatible with stemcells of 3445.11+

Known Issues

  • lua-timeout-limit, a Redis configuration that is exposed to app developers through arbitrary parameters in v1.9, does not have any effect due to a bug in Redis v3.2.8.

  • The redis-odb service broker listens on 12345. This is inconsistent with other services.

  • The When Changed option for errands has unexpected behavior. Do not select this choice as an errand.

  • Logs for service-backup and service-metrics releases are truncated when syslog is not configured.

Redis for PCF v1.8.5

August 29, 2017

Bug Fixes

  • Ensures all eviction policies are enforced when on-demand instance memory is full.

Compatibility

  • Uses On-Demand Service Broker v0.17.0

Known Issues

  • The on-demand broker cannot be set to 0. This means that the instructions for disabling the on-demand service cannot be followed.

  • lua-timeout-limit, a Redis configuration that is exposed to app developers through arbitrary parameters in v1.9, does not have any effect due to a bug in Redis v3.2.8.

  • The redis-odb service broker listens on 12345. This is inconsistent with other services.

  • The When Changed option for errands has unexpected behavior. Do not select this choice as an errand.

  • Logs for service-backup and service-metrics releases are truncated when syslog is not configured.

Redis for PCF v1.8.4

July 20, 2017

Bug Fixes

  • On-demand service instances correctly pick up new Redis releases and stemcells when upgraded. This addresses a prior bug where pre-existing instances were not upgrading Redis Releases or Stemcells.

  • On-demand smoke tests are skipped if the quota for on-demand service instances has been met. This addresses a prior bug where the smoke tests would fail if the quota had been met.

  • Includes a bug fix in the control script for process-destroyer which prevents process-watcher from restarting periodically (every 10,000 seconds).

Known Issues

  • The on-demand broker cannot be set to 0. This means that the instructions for disabling the on-demand service cannot be followed.

  • lua-timeout-limit a Redis configuration that is exposed to app developers through arbitrary parameters in v1.9, do not have any effect due to a bug in Redis v3.2.8.

  • The redis-odb service broker listens on 12345. This is inconsistent with other services.

  • The When Changed option for errands has unexpected behavior. Do not select this choice as an errand.

  • On-demand instances may not correctly enforce eviction policies when memory is full.

Redis for PCF v1.8.2

June 1, 2017

Compatibility

  • This release is compatibles with Stemcells 3363.24+.

Features

  • Requires 2048-bit certificate length on Dedicated VMs.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes a bug in v1.8.1 where the Dedicated-VM service experiences periodic restarts.

  • Fixes the formatting for the new on-demand service in Apps Manager.

  • Allows for Redis backups to all AWS S3 regions.

Known Issues

  • The on-demand broker cannot be set to 0. This means that the instructions for disabling the on-demand service cannot be followed.

  • A bug exists in the control script for process-destroyer which causes process-watcher to restart periodically (every 10,000 seconds). The bug won’t cause problems outside of making it more difficult to distinguish real issues reported by monit.

  • New on-demand service instances do not pick up new stemcells beyond 3363.24.

  • Upgrades of on-demand service instances from v1.8.0 and v1.8.1 to v1.8.2 do not take effect.

  • lua-timeout-limit, a Redis configuration that is exposed to app developers through arbitrary parameters in v1.8, do not have any effect due to a bug in Redis v3.2.8.

  • Redis smoke tests fail if the number of instances of a certain plan have reached the global quota. Either remove the smoke tests errand or increase your quota.

  • The redis-odb service broker listens on 12345. This is inconsistent with other services.

  • The When Changed option for errands has unexpected behavior. Do not select this choice as an errand.

  • On-demand instances may not correctly enforce eviction policies when memory is full.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes a bug in v1.8.0 that causes a failure to install if the Director has a hostname configured in Ops Manager.

Known Issues

  • The on-demand broker cannot be set to 0. This means that the instructions for disabling the on-demand service cannot be followed.

  • A bug exists in the control script for process-destroyer which causes process-watcher to restart periodically (every 10,000 seconds). The bug won’t cause problems outside of making it more difficult to distinguish real issues reported by monit.

  • New on-demand service instances do not pick up new stemcells beyond 3363.20.

  • Upgrades of on-demand service instances from v1.8.0 to v1.8.1 do not take effect.

  • A bug exists where the Dedicated-VM service experience periodic restarts.

  • lua-timeout-limit, a Redis configuration that is exposed to app developers through arbitrary parameters in v1.8, do not have any effect due to a bug in Redis v3.2.8.

Redis for PCF v1.8.0

May 5, 2017

Compatibility

  • This release is compatible with PCF v1.9+.

  • Includes Redis v3.2.8.

  • The redis-broker now listens on port 12350.

  • The on-demand Service leverages the On-Demand Broker v0.15.2

  • TLS is turned on for metric communications.

  • All Redis instances now have a consul agent co-located for service discovery and DNS. This means instances need to be able to listen on 8301.

  • For the on-demand service, the on-demand Service broker needs to talk to bosh director. This requires firewall rules to open TCP 8443 and 25555.

Known Issues

  • The on-demand broker cannot be set to 0. This means that the instructions for disabling the on-demand service cannot be followed.

  • New on-demand service instances do not pick up new stemcells beyond the one they were installed with.

  • lua-timeout-limit a Redis configuration that is exposed to app developers through arbitrary parameters in v1.8, do not have any effect due to a bug in Redis v3.2.8.

  • Redis smoke tests fail if the number of instances of a certain plan have reached the global quota. Either remove the smoke tests errand or increase your quota.

  • The When Changed option for errands has unexpected behavior. Do not select this choice as an errand and should change the defaults from ‘When Changed’ to 'On’

  • Redis backups to AWS S3 are limited to standard region. Backups are only sent to AWS S3 buckets that have been created in the US Standard region, “us-east-1.”

  • Fails to install if a hostname has been configured for the Director in Ops Manager.

  • The redis-odb service broker listens on 12345. This is inconsistent with other services.
