Section and Paragraph rule types added to Revision Manager

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

An enhancement has been made to add support for section and paragraph rule types in revision management. With this change, the sections and paragraph rule types can be added to overlay and can be added to change requests and modified.

Enhancement added for node heartbeat recovery process

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

Nodes were not showing up in the admin portal even though they were up and running and could be seen in the pr_sys_statusnodes table. The exception "An exception was encountered while invoking the cluster membership listener callback" was seen. All nodes became visible again after multiple restarts. The root cause was traced back to a temporary database connectivity problem. The database itself was fine according to database monitoring reports, but a network problem, a slow database query, or another issue prevented Pega from establishing a connection for more than a minute. An enhancement has been made to resolve this: if a node becomes unhealthy due to the service registry missing due to a failed heartbeat, the heartbeat will try to recover after 60 seconds and keep trying every 30 seconds until it succeeds.

Data Transform added to support Kafka custom serialization/deserialization

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

Previously in a Kafka DataSet it was possible to either serialize or deserialize messages as mapped objects to JSON, or to implement some other mechanism to achieve the expected results. An enhancement has now been added to the Pega platform functionality: DataTransformSerde will be available to be used as custom serialization/deserialization mechanism in Kafka DataSet.

Improved cleanup for adm_response_meta_info

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

The adm_commitlog.adm_response_meta_info column family was growing, leading to gradual increase in CPU utilization on the ADM nodes over time. Investigation showed that the compaction on the adm_response_meta_info table was not being triggered by the ADM service, and the compaction did not remove rows that belonged to models that had been deleted. To resolve this, compaction of the adm_response_meta_info table has been moved from the ADM client nodes to the ADM service nodes, which will correctly trigger the compaction on a predefined schedule. The compaction logic has also been refactored to remove rows that belong to models that have been deleted.

Performance improvements for very heavy use of strategy decision logic

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

Updates have been made to improve memory performance for scenarios where a single request primary page had tens of thousands of pages under an embedded pagelist property and the decision logic involves a strategy running on all the pages in that page list. These include modifications to GetFramesSSA to create reusable frames under heavy load conditions that contain the information about all the primary pages that it has to iterate; if CallSsaProgram receives one of these special frames, it will use it invoke the program by repurposing it with a new primary page at each iteration.

Strategy handling updated for very large systems using IH summary

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

When a Strategy in a Real-time dataflow used IH Summary on a system with more than 5000 groups for one eventKey, the message "Error retrieving aggregates from Cassandra KVS" intermittently appeared. Investigation showed that if the number of result rows was greater than the FETCH_SIZE (set to 5000), it meant another read to Cassandra was required and an exception was generated. To resolve this, updates have been made so that instead of returning maps, the system will return iterators and change them to map on the calling thread.

SR-D16934 · Issue 493705

External Cassandra nodes listed in DDS cluster

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

Nodes of an external Cassandra cluster were not listed in the DDS cluster except for the first one in the host list, and when the “only” listed Cassandra node was restarted, the status on the DDS cluster LP did not become “NORMAL” afterwards. In addition, even though other C* nodes were up and running, the external Cassandra cluster was reported as unreachable. This was an unintended side effect of work done on the landing page to reflect the real state of the nodes after some were killed and restarted, and has been corrected by refining the equals() and hashCode() methods for DDS member info in order to better differentiate the external Cassandra nodes.

IH summaries working with external Cassandra

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

Summaries were not working for external Cassandra. This was an issue with the IH summary component using the aggregated dataset as a reference, and this fix contains several components to improve this function. An issue where the IH aggregates dataset does not materialize when DDS is external Cassandra has been resolved by modifying the code that checks the DDS availability. A filter that was used to match “” did not work when pre-aggregation is off : this was due to the IH Browse operation being done outside of a DF context, and has been fixed. The IH Summary shape not working properly in a strategy if it referenced an aggregate dataset with pxInteractionID as part of the group-by properties was traced to an issue with it generating a pxInteractionID value when executing the strategy, and has been resolved by excluding pxInteractionID from the group keys in the IH Summary shape.

SR-D24880 · Issue 494175

CEP bucket size increased to 1 minute

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

Frequent DSM Data Flow Errors were observed in production nodes with very high event rates. This was traced to the default bucket size for CEP being 1 second for a 31 day window, which was not sufficient to handle high volume use which may create an event strategy window large enough to hit the Cassandra column size limit. In order to resolve this, the default bucket size has been increased from 1 second to 1 minute.

SR-D26010 · Issue 500166

Modified VBD insertion logic to improve handling

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

An issue with not being able to launch an additional VDB node was traced to two processes inserting into VBD with different field signatures and triggering unnecessary object creation. This was amplified when adding a second node as the objects were serialized. To resolve this, the insertion logic has been modified to avoid creating new data container/field descriptors after a new field is included, as well as a measurement with smaller data type than previous container.
