  1. Remove the logplex_shard url cache.

    Now configured shards are in logplex_shard_info and logplex_app:config only.

  2. Merge pull request #55 from heroku/m_equal_logplex_stats

    Add m= in front of logplex_stats logging so it's easier to group in splunk

  1. Changing memory allocation settings for binaries

    Changing the allocator strategy for binary_alloc to do aobf rather than
    bf (+MBas aobf). Depending on how all of the binaries are allocated,
    this could make new allocations favor the same carrier. This will only
    add a small cpu overhead when allocating new binaries. This could
    however worsen our utilization even more if we are unlucky, it will
    however make allocations faster and more in the same area in the
    expected case, which should reduce fragmentation and untraceable leaks.
    
    We're also decreasing the size of our mbcs. Right now we have smbcs set
    to 256 kb and lmbcs at 5 MB (rounded up to 8MB as ERTS only allocates
    multiples of 2) and an average multi-block carrier size of 7.78 MB. We
    try to set +MBlmbcs 512 so that we get many more carriers and
    thus increase the chance that it can be returned to the OS.
    
    These two options have been recommended by members of the Erlang/OTP
    team to reduce the passive memory leaks due to allocation patterns
    compared to our peculiar use cases for log messages.

  1. Basic batchio inclusion, replaces lager macros

    batches io:format calls into a buffer process to reduce the number
    of calls required and also do overload protection automatically.
    
    Experimental material to see if it helps with performance, given the
    buffering and load shedding allow to go asynchronous on log messages
    without loosing too much data.

  1. v69.2 to v69.3 actually good upgrade path

    Was missing a path addition for backoff to be loaded, causing a node
    failure.

  2. Upgrade to redgrid 1.0.3

    Redgrid 1.0.3 adds tolerance for DNS disconnections and configuration
    reloading.

  3. Raising send timeout to 5s on HTTP(s) drains

    When network or drains show bad behaviour temporarily, low timeouts we
    currently have (1 second) ends up killing connections and raising the
    retry count of frames. When massive losses are seen, it makes it
    difficult to put the blame on logplex's speed at sending logs, or the
    drains consumption (or network).
    
    By raising the timeout a bit, we should reduce the reconnection rate and
    at the same time make it harder to blame logplex (as an individual node)
    for the problems.
    
    This should not have a super significant impact on the drop rate,
    however, but possibly a noticeable one.

  4. More reliable tests for log transmission

    Log messages can land in non-sequential order due to be the receive/send
    routine. this fix makes it so we reorder all the messages received to
    verify them first.

  1. log-token inspection function

    This escript allows to fetch app ids (for now) based on a given log
    token, assuming access to the local host.

  1. Fixing deps and adding recon

    Mochiweb branches were broken for public and test rebar config. This
    comes from the migration from the mochi account to the internal heroku
    account. New branches were created but the account name wasn't switched.
    
    Recon is a library to help with devops tasks in production.

  1. configuring lager watermarks

    ferd committed Aug 8, 2013
  2. Moving to a sys.config configuration

    Rather than configuring specific apps in many places (bin/logplex,
    bin/devel_logplex, logplex_app.erl), configurations are moved to a
    sys.config file that can be loaded by adding `-config sys` to the `erl`
    exectuable, or loaded automatically when generating an OTP release.

  3. Moving logging to lager

    The current logplex version shows a point of contention for logs through
    using io:format/2. Although it is unlikely lager will help a lot with
    it given we don't log directly to disk (and this is where it shines in
    comparison to other logging engines), it's worth trying to see if things
    are improving with it.
    
    Custom log formats are used to make sure the production log format
    remains 100% identical to the former one. They will, however, be
    different during test runs because no specific care has been taken to
    make the lager config be compatible in test cases.

  4. Adding hibernation timeouts on drains

    An inactive drain or buffer (Receives no request from the outside world)
    should be sent to hibernation in order to trigger a full-sweep GC,
    compact the memory of the process, and reduce the overall load of the
    system, and possibly reducing memory fragmentation of the VM at the cost
    of slightly more CPU when it triggers.
    
    The timeout is implemented using the gen_fsm timeout option, which
    automatically resets timeout timers when a message is processed by the
    process. This should allow to generally catch any kind of inactivity and
    force hibernation of the processes.
    
    Note: it is not yet known if the timeout value of 5 seconds or the
    amount of timers setup/cancellations will have an impact of any
    significance on an active system or not. The values may need to be
    tweaked or the effort redirected towards manual GC if refc binaries keep
    on hogging the memory after this.

  1. Making counters explicit for buffer size

    The logplex_msg_buffer module is used extensively by drain processes
    that buffer request and need to be the least blocking possible under
    heavy load. The current implementation would recalculate the entire
    queue length on every call, which became both time consuming and CPU
    intensive when the buffer was full, which happens when you have to count
    lengths even more often.
    
    This patch makes it so that we have an explicit counter for the buffer
    so that we don't need to recalculate it all the time, lowering the
    contention for runtime for a given process.
    
    The module includes conversion clauses for all functions part of the API
    so that the code can be hot-reloaded without stopping, and just adapt to
    the new format.

  2. Force hibernation on drain reconnect

    When there's a timer being set for a reconnection, we force hibernation
    in order to do a fullsweep GC of the drain processes.
    
    This might incur a certain cost for very busy-but-disconnected
    processes, forcing a short pause, but the backoff timers for
    reconnections will act as rate limiters on this.
