  • Known Bug: Inconsistent data between Optimization Recommendations and Application Profiling for unstable applications. An unstable application can trigger a recommendation in the Command Center, but will not appear as having a recommendation in Application Profiling page or vise versa. As a result of the unstable state of the application, submitting the recommendation might not perform any action by Sosivio.
  • Known Bug: Health Check page filtering - when trying to filter "is not" twice in the same filter there are no result displayed.
  • OpenShift 3 Support: As of Sosivio V1.5 Sosivio's installer & operator will no longer support Openshift 3.x.

General

  • Sosivio microservices improvements: Optimized Sosivio resource utilization and Sosivio autoscaling functionality.

Bug Fixes

Application Profiling

  • Application profiling now supports Openshift deploymentConfig objects.

General

  • Admin password during upgrades: When performing an upgrade from an earlier version of Sosivio to version 1.4.2 the admin password remains as the last used admin password and does not reset.
  • Improved Sosivio microservices stability.
  • Known Bug: Health Check page filtering - when trying to filter "is not" twice in the same filter there are no result displayed.
  • Known Bug: Multi Cluster View page - when rejecting a cluster request the status displays as "Pending approval".
  • Known Bug: SosivioDB - When installing or upgrading Sosivio it can take up to 20 minutes for Sosivio to fully adjust to the cluster size. When the final adjustment takes place a flicker of the counts of cluster resources can occur up to 5 seconds. The short flickering might occur again, but only if cluster resources increase more than 40%.
  • Known Bug: When all of SosivioDB Pods are erased or terminated a loss of users and/or license information might occur. To recover the error, run the following commands:
kubectl scale deploy actuator -n sosivio --replicas=0
kubectl scale deploy crud-manager -n sosivio --replicas=0
kubectl scale deploy sosiviodb -n sosivio --replicas=0
sleep 60
kubectl scale deploy actuator -n sosivio --replicas=1
kubectl scale deploy crud-manager -n sosivio --replicas=3
