Improvements

YSQL

  • Treats REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW as a non-disruptive change, preventing unnecessary transaction terminations. The default option, REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW NONCONCURRENTLY, modifies metadata but without making a disruptive alteration. #20420

Bug fixes

YSQL

  • Ensures the Linux PDEATH_SIG mechanism signals child processes of their parent process's exit, by correctly configuring all PG backends immediately after their fork from the postmaster process. #20396
  • Fixes table rewrite issue on non-colocated tables/matviews in colocated DB, ensuring the new table uses the original table's colocation setting. Includes a workaround for GH issue 20914. #20856
  • Prevents simultaneous send of read and write operations in the same RPC request that could lead to inconsistent read results, by ensuring that, in case of multiple operations, all buffered ones are flushed first. #20864
  • Increases the schema version of the default partition whenever you create a new partition, preventing erroneous data insertion into the default partition due to cache refresh issues. #17942
  • Adjusts heartbeat mechanism to shut down when an "Unknown Session" error occurs, reducing log alerts. This benefits idle connections with expired sessions. #21264
  • Allows BNL's on outer and inner tables, even if the inner table has "unbatchable" join restrictions that can't accept batches of inputs, enhancing queries with complex join conditions. #21366
  • Corrects error in creating an index using both SPLIT AT and INCLUDE by properly considering included columns in computing split rows. #11880

DocDB

  • Corrects the RPATH setting for certain OpenLDAP libraries, ensuring correct versions are used and eliminating potential system conflicts. #21236
  • Corrects block cache metrics discrepancy by ensuring Statistics object passes into LRUCache from TableCache for accurate updates. #21407
  • Resolves issues in the under-replicated endpoint algorithm, ensuring correct counting of replicas only when the block's minimum number of replicas has not been fulfilled yet, hence offering accurate replica tally for placement blocks. #20657
  • Validates the use of two arguments for disable_tablet_splitting, addressing a previous condition where only one was required, thereby enhancing backup process reliability. #8744
  • Updates the condition for HT lease reporting to ensure accurate leaderless tablet detection in RF-1 setup, preventing false alarms. #20919

CDC

  • Reduces tablet split data loss risk by updating cdc_sdk_safe_time only when a GetChanges explicit checkpoint acknowledgment is received, improving data reliability. #15718
  • Fixed the decoding of NUMERIC value in CDC records to prevent precision loss by ensuring that the decoded string is not converted to scientific notation if its length is more than 20 characters. Additionally, the fix involves using the string representation with no limit on length and employing the Postgres numeric_out method for decoding, which is identical to the decoding of numerics in a PG query. #20414

v2.18.6.0 - February 6, 2024

Use 2.18.7.0 or later.

Improvements

  • Resolves potential WriteQuery leak issue in CQL workloads, ensuring proper execution and destruction of queries, while preventing possible tablet shutdown blockages during conflict resolution failure. #19919
  • Unblocks single shard waiters once a blocking sub-transaction rolls back, by applying identical conflict check logic for both distributed transactions and single shard transactions. #20113
  • Eliminates a race condition that can occur when simultaneous calls to SendAbortToOldStatusTabletIfNeeded try to send the abort RPC, thus preventing avoidable FATALs for failed geo promotions. #17113
  • Deprecates the enable_process_lifetime_heap_sampling flag and allows to control tcmalloc sampling via the profiler_sample_freq_bytes flag alone, enhancing user control over database sampling settings. #20236
  • Resolves instances of the leaderless tablet endpoint incorrectly reporting a tablet as leaderless post-leader change, by tweaking the detection logic to depend on the last occurrence of a valid leader, ensuring more accurate tablet reporting. #20124
  • Allows early termination of ReadCommitted transactions with a kConflict error, enhancing overall system throughput by eliminating unnecessary blockages without waiting for the next RPC restart. #20329
  • Modifies SysCatalog tablet's retryable request retention duration to consider both YQL and YSQL client timeouts, reducing the likelihood of request is too old errors during YSql DDLs. #20330
  • Fixes FATAL errors occurring during tablet participant shutdown due to in-progress RPCs by ensuring rpcs_.Shutdown is invoked after all status resolvers have been shut down. #19823
  • Handles backfill responses gracefully even when they overlap across multiple operations, reducing risks of crashes and errors due to network delays or slow masters. #20510

CDC

  • Corrects the computation of the cdcsdk_sent_lag metric to prevent steep, disproportionate increases by updating the last_sent_record_time when a SafePoint record is spotted, in addition to DMLs and READ ops. #15415
  • Adjusts table drop process to shift CDCSDK streams from ACTIVE to DELETING_METADATA state, enhancing the ability to add new tables to streams even after a table drop. #20428
