Stein Series Release Notes



Adds support for versioned nova server notifications.

Added new tool searchlight-status upgrade check.

New Features

  • Support for versioned nova server notifications (and related notifications where supported, like volume attach). This has to be enabled (it is not yet the default).

    This reduces the callbacks to the nova API significantly.

  • New framework for searchlight-status upgrade check command is added. This framework allows adding various checks which can be run before a Searchlight upgrade to ensure if the upgrade can be performed safely.

Known Issues

  • Payload versioning is somewhat manual; a given release will support a maxmimum major payload version and warn on later minor versions.

Upgrade Notes

  • Add support for ElasticSearch 5.x

  • Configuration needs changing to support versioned notifications; see docs.

  • Operator can now use new CLI tool searchlight-status upgrade check to check if Searchlight deployment can be safely upgraded from N-1 to N release.
