INC-130304 · Issue 567924

Retry logic added for downloading upgraded rules

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A Rules upgrade failed while downloading applications from the maintenance server due to an SFTP server connection failure. This has been resolved by adding logic to retry if the first connection attempt fails.

Enhancements for upgrading in multi-tenant environment

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

Some muti-tenant installations use the same applications or rule instances with the same pzInsKeys for different tenants. This can cause upgrades to time out due to the system fetching all pzInsKeys (which will have duplicates) and working with them in a default batch size of 500 each over 4 threads. This led to the same keys potentially being allocated and processed in different threads, resulting in duplicate processing and timeouts. This has been resolved by updating the select query to fetch the tentantid and pzInskeys in the MT system to avoid duplicate work in multiple threads. In addition, running Generate Declarative indexes fetches the pzinskeys and generates indexes for each record, but before generating, the existing index for the record is deleted and then inserted. Because the delete query to generate the index was not tenant aware, all of the records for the key were deleted for the tenants for that key, but the new index was created only in one tenant. This has been resolved by enhancing the DELETE query to be tenant aware, which will avoid deleting the indexes for all the tenants given an index key.

Resolved buffer overflow for Migration loadDatabase

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A Rules upgrade failed in the Migration step at loadDatabase stage, involving the move of all the table records from old schema to new schema. This was traced to the inability of Migration to load blob of sizes more than 100 MB, and has been resolved by updating Migration to use byte[] to read the blob content with the help of metadata that contains blob length.

TableRenameUtil hashing improved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

During index name generation, the algorithm that was responsible for index name uniqueness was sometimes insufficient and cerated a loop condition. This has been resolved by using a stronger hash algorithm and refactoring the code that could result in a loop.

SR-D84364 · Issue 551402

Check for circular references added to SearchInventoryImpl to prevent recursive call

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

An out of memory error was traced to SearchInventoryImpl infinitely recursing over a clipboard property, where the child property referenced a parent property and resulted in an endless loop. This has been resolved with the addition of a depth check to ensure that the search does not recurse infinitely.

Hot Fix Manager updated to use installation order for schema import

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

Schema changes were not being imported during the hot fix manager DL import process. Investigation showed this was due to hotfixes in the DL being iterated over from newest to oldest, causing older hotfixes to replace the value added to a map by the newer. To resolve this, the system has been updated to use hotfix install order, which considers selected and dependent hotfixes, rather than ordering newest to oldest. This ensures that newer table representations will override older rather than the other way around.

SR-D20439 · Issue 496405

Hotfix hashmap cleanup improved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

A DL installation failed with an out-of-memory error. It was observed that many CacheEntry(VersionedJdbcJarRwader.java) hashmaps were being created to store the details for each hotfix but that were then never cleared. This has been resolved by adding the finally block in CodeImportProcessImpl.java class to call the shutdown method for proper cleanup. In addition, the default command line utility (prpcUtils) has been updated to use JVM settings of Xmx 4GB and capture a heap dump if an out-of-memory error is encountered. The auto-generated prconfig.xml has also been updated to leverage its minimal startup setting which will avoid loading the conclusion cache into memory.

SR-D28538 · Issue 502059

Corrected requestor status flag for direct map

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

Numerous "Unable to create requestor" alerts were logged. This was traced to an error in HttpAPI where after retrieving the requestor from the internal requestor map directly, the requestor creation status flag was not set properly. This caused last action to post that alert instead of the correct notice of "existing requestor retrieved". This has been resolved so the flag reflects the correct status.

SR-D51554 · Issue 514064

Local UUID cache will be updated when merge event is detected

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

Cluster-related issues were seen in multiple production clusters. For some nodes in the cluster the Cluster Management screen showed all expected nodes with valid Node IDs displayed, and on other nodes the Cluster Management screen showed the node ID of itself, SERVER@localhost:5701. On an impacted node displaying the wrong ID, the Node Information landing page did not work and displayed the error "Unable to execute job on ." Multiple advanced agents running on nodes in the affected clusters, both with correct and incorrect IDs, also failed with a similar error "Unable to execute job on <node's job id>". This was traced to a merge performed after a split brain. To resolve this, the code has been updated to handle merge events: when the node UUID is changed as part of a split brain recovery, the local UUID cache will be updated when the merge event is detected.

SR-D20423 · Issue 503447

Improved upgrade handling for tables using classes with property references

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

After upgrade, some page property values were blank and exposed database columns did not contain the values. Investigation showed that the reference properties did not have context and hence column population was not able to determine their value. To resolve this, instead of doing column population for all the columns, the system will identify classes that have property references and that are being optimized as part of upgrade process and maintain a list of specific columns to update.
