Core Server

Bug Fixes

  • Process responsible for running the autoheal partition handling strategy
    could run into a deadlock with its peers, preventing autoheal from completing.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1346

  • Garbage collection of mirrored queue metrics on nodes that did not
    host a master or mirror for a queue affected delivery and acknowledgement rates.
    This could result in rates being 0 or negative when they should not be.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1340

  • Stats emission could prevent queue mirrors from performing garbage collection
    and consume memory even when they were empty.
