A.1. Tungsten Clustering 5.2.1 GA (21 Sep 2017)

Release 5.2.1 is a bug fix release.

Improvements, new features and functionality

  • Tungsten Connector

    • Host-based read-write splitting is now also available in bridge mode. The solution can work either by using a modified /etc/hosts, or by using multiple localhost entries in user.map:

      @hostoption 127.0.0.2 qos=RO_RELAXED

      Any other IP will get the default configuration (generally RW_STRICT).

      Issues: CT-341

Bug Fixes

  • Installation and Deployment

    • The tpm connector command would fail to import any local configuration options.

      Issues: CT-137

  • Command-line Tools

    • The tpm connector would fail in MySQL 5.7 deployments because MySQL expects to use SSL by default.

      Issues: CT-363

  • Tungsten Connector

    • A small optimisation has been found in the way the connector reads packets from MySQL.

      Issues: CT-340

    • The logging configuration for the Connector had been badly configured with a check time on the logging file of 30ms in place of desired 30s. This introduced a significant performance deficit due to over-checking the file. This has now been updated to 30s.

      Issues: CT-342

    • When running in bridge mod,e the Connecto would not disconnect ongoing connections after losing contact with managers.

      Issues: CT-371
