10 ## Features and Improvements for Riak
11
12 * Aggregation of non-streamed MapReduce results was
13 improved. Previous versions used an O(n^2) process, where n is
14 the number of outputs for a phase. The aggregation in Riak 1.2 is
15 O(n). (riak_kv#331,333, riak-erlang-client#58,59).
16
17 * Timeouts of MapReduce jobs now produce less error log spam. The
18 safe-to-ignore-but-confusing `{sink_died, normal}` messages have
19 been removed. (riak_pipe#45)
20
21 * The `riak-admin transfers` command now reports the
22 [status of active transfers] [xfer_status]. This gives more insight
23 into what transfers are occurring, their type, their running time,
24 and the rate at which data is being transferred. Calling this
25 command will no longer stall handoff.
26
27 * The memory storage backend for Riak KV now supports secondary indexes and has a "test" mode that lets developers quickly clear all local storage (useful in the context of an external test suite).
28
29 ### Protocol Buffers Enhancements
30
31 * The design of the Protocol Buffers on the server-side has been significantly refactored, allowing sub-applications other than Riak KV to supply services to clients.
32 * Secondary indexes can be natively queried from Protocol Buffers clients, They no longer need to emulate them with MapReduce.
33 * Riak Search indexes can be natively queried from Protocol Buffers clients. They no longer need to emulate them with MapReduce.
34
35 ### Stats improvements
36
37 * Riak now uses the open source [Folsom](https://github.com/boundary/folsom) library for stats
38 * Riak_search now has stats
39 * Getting stats from riak_kv should no longer timeout under very heavy load as there is no longer a gen_server
40 process for stats.

41 * Stats can still be retrieved as before, with the addition that one can now attach to a node and

42 query stats directly through folsom. Use `folsom_metrics:get_metrics()` to see a list of available stats.
43 * Configurable sample types for histogram metrics in riak_kv and riak_search. Defaults to a one minute sliding window, with random uniform reservoir size of 1028 readings per second. This means that the following statistics *may* show slightly different results from pre1.2 nodes as there may be fewer readings than the total number or events.
44 * riak_kv_node_get_fsm_siblings
45 * riak_kv_node_get_fsm_time,
46 * riak_kv_node_put_fsm_time
47 * riak_kv_node_get_fsm_objsize

48 * You can configure the sample type by adding
f12596c @jaredmorrow Add updated release notes for 1.2
jaredmorrow authored
49 `{stat_sample_type, {slide, Window::int()}}` or `{stat_sample_type, {slide_uniform, {Window::int(), Size::int()}}}` to your `app.config` under the section for riak_kv and/or riak_search. Further you may change the sample type for a named stat only, like this `{{riak_kv, node_get_fsm_time}, {slide_uniform, {60, 10000}}}`
50
51 ### Packaging Improvements
52
53 * A binary package for FreeBSD 9 is now provided
54 * A binary package for SmartOS is now provided
55 * Ubuntu packages for 10.04 (Lucid), 11.04 (Natty), and 12.04 (Precise) are now provided as separate packages
56 * See "Bugs Fixed" for packaging related bug fixes
57
58 ### Leveldb tuning
1a7bf78 @dreverri Minor corrections to the 1.2 release notes

59 * Bloom filter code from google added. This greatly reduces the search time for keys that do not exist.
60 * File sizes increased 10x or more. This reduces the amount of disk activity, increasing performance.

62 ### Capability Negotiation

64 * Riak nodes now negotiate with each other to determine supported operating modes,
f12596c @jaredmorrow Add updated release notes for 1.2
jaredmorrow authored
65 allowing clusters containing mixed-versions of Riak to work properly without special
66 configuration.
67
68 * This simplifies rolling upgrades. In the past, users needed to disable new features
69 during the rolling upgrade, and then enable them after all nodes were upgraded. This
70 is now handled automatically by Riak.
71
72 * This change replaces several existing configuration parameters, with the old settings
73 being ignored entirely in Riak 1.2. The following values are the ones that are no longer
74 used in Riak 1.2, along with the new behavior:
75 * `riak_core/legacy_vnode_routing`: Uses the newer vnode routing layer (introduced in Riak 1.1) when supported; otherwise, defaults to the legacy routing protocol.
76 * `riak_kv/legacy_keylisting`: Uses coverage based keylisting (introduced in Riak 1.0) when supported; otherwise,
77 defaults to the legacy keylisting behavior.
78 * `riak_kv/listkeys_backpressure`: Enables listkeys backpressure (introduced in Riak 1.1) when supported.
79 * `riak_kv/mapred_2i_pipe`: Use parallel secondary-index input to map/reduce jobs (introduced in Riak 1.1) when supported.
80 * `riak_kv/mapred_system`: Use `riak_pipe` for map/reduce (introduced in Riak 1.0) when supported; otherwise, default to legacy `luke` system.
81
82 * To override capability negotiation (which is discouraged), there is now a per-component override setting
83 that can be set in `app.config`. For example, the following could be added to the `riak_kv` section of
84 `app.config` to alter negotiation of the `listkeys_backpressure` and `mapred_system` settings:
85
86 ```erlang
87 %% Override listkeys_backpressure setting to always be set to 'false'.
88 %%
89 %% Override mapred_system setting to use 'legacy' if all nodes in the cluster
90 %% support 'legacy', otherwise use the built-in default setting.
91 [{override_capability,
92 [{listkeys_backpressure, [{use, false}]},
93 {mapred_system, [{prefer, legacy}]}]
94 }]
95 ```
96
97 ### Overhauled Cluster Adminstration
98
99 * Riak now provides a multi-phase approach to cluster administration
100 that allows changes to be staged and reviewed before being committed.
101
102 * This change allows multiple changes to be grouped together, such as
103 adding multiple nodes at once, or adding some nodes while removing
104 others.
105
106 * This new approach also provides details about how a set of staged
107 changes will impact the cluster, listing the future ring ownership
108 as well as the number of transfers necessary to implement the planned
109 changes.
110
111 * This new approach is currently implemented only by `riak-admin`, and
112 is not yet part of Riak Control. The older `riak-admin` commands such
113 as `join, leave, force-remove` have been deprecated, although they can
114 still be used by appending `-f`, eg. `riak-admin join -f`.
115
116 * The new cluster admin interface is accessed through `riak-admin cluster`:
117
118 ```text
119 Usage: riak-admin cluster <command>
120
121 The following commands stage changes to cluster membership. These commands
122 do not take effect immediately. After staging a set of changes, the staged
123 plan must be committed to take effect:
124
125 join <node> Join node to the cluster containing <node>
126 leave Have this node leave the cluster and shutdown
127 leave <node> Have <node> leave the cluster and shutdown
128
129 force-remove <node> Remove <node> from the cluster without
130 first handing off data. Designed for
131 crashed, unrecoverable nodes
132
133 replace <node1> <node2> Have <node1> transfer all data to <node2>,
134 and then leave the cluster and shutdown
135
136 force-replace <node1> <node2> Reassign all partitions owned by <node1> to
137 <node2> without first handing off data, and
138 remove <node1> from the cluster.
139
140 Staging commands:
141 plan Display the staged changes to the cluster
142 commit Commit the staged changes
143 clear Clear the staged changes
144 ```

151 ## Known Issues
152
5e1405a @jaredmorrow Update release notes for 1.2 RC2
jaredmorrow authored
153 * The Protocol Buffers interface when returning `RpbErrorResp` responses to the client will set the `errcode` field to `0`, whereas before it was `1` or unset. Only client libraries that previously attempted to apply meaning to the `errcode` field will be affected. Improvement of the error responses from Protocol Buffers is planned for the next major release.
154 * Some spurious messages may be sent to the log after a Pipe-based MapReduce job sent via PBC has been shutdown. This does not affect normal operations. [basho/riak_kv#366](https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/issues/366)

155 * The SmartOS packages were tested against 1.5.x and 1.6.x datasets from Joyent. The newest datasets of SmartOS 1.7.x have not been tested and are not supported currently.
e615f36 @jaredmorrow Release note update for 1.2.0
jaredmorrow authored
156 * Secondary index queries against a heavily loaded cluster may hit an improperly-handled internal timeout and result in error responses. This affects both HTTP and Protocol Buffers interfaces and has existed since Riak 1.0. [basho/riak_kv#379](https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/pull/379)
157 * MapReduce queries may print messages in the log of the form, `[error] Module <module name> must be purged before loading`, due to a race in the code that ensures a module is loaded before it is used. This message may be safely ignored. It can be silenced by attaching to the Riak console and evaluating `code:purge(<module name>).`.
ec86ce8 @jaredmorrow Add 21 known issue for Riak 1.2.0
jaredmorrow authored
158 * Some users may experience a performance regression in 2I compared to 1.0 and 1.1. The problem manifests as higher latencies for range and equality queries. A preliminary investigation suggests the change of the Erlang VM from R14B04 to R15B01 is partially responsible, but there may be other factors.

203 ## Notes
204
205 * The Luke application, and with it the "legacy" MapReduce system should be considered deprecated. All systems should be configured to use Riak Pipe as their MapReduce system (the default since 1.0). The Luke application may be removed as soon as the next release.
206 * The Innostore storage backend is deprecated and will not be supported in the 1.2 release.
