Version End of Life. 15 Aug 2024
Release 6.1.20 contains a number of critical bug fixes and improvements.
The following changes have been made to Tungsten Cluster and may affect existing scripts and integration tools. Any scripts or environment which make use of these tools should check and update for the new configuration:
Both the tungsten_get_ports and tpm report commands have been updated to use the ss OS command when the netstat OS command is unavailable or deprecated.
No longer sending write traffic to the remote site unless the local site is fully offline. In case of local failover, the connector will now pause connections until a new primary is elected. This will avoid risks of out-of-order apply after local failover
A new command has been added called tungsten_get_ports, which will display the running Tungsten processes and the associated TCP ports that those processes are listening on.
The tungsten_get_ports command now supports the
/opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-connector/conf/interfaces.json file, if found.
When running the cluster_backup in a Active/Active environment, when setting
to false, the script would still attempt to backup the Primary as it would scan the wrong sub-service and incorrectly identify the
Relay node as a candidate.
A bug has been fixed that, in a few very rare cases, would allow replicas to continue to pull and apply THL from a failed primary whilst a failover was in the process of electing a new primary. This resulted in failovers being unable to complete fully. Whilst the new primary would be online and functioning, existing replicas in the cluster could experience errors due to THL discrepencies between the old and new primary nodes.
