Aerospike Database Release Notes

March 16, 2023

Aerospike Database software version is now available.

This release is a hotfix for Aerospike server 6.1.


Community, Enterprise, & Federal Edition: This version and subsequent server 6.1.0.x Debian package software files (.deb) and Red Hat Package Manager files (.rpm) are now GPG Signed.

Bug Fixes

  • Enterprise, Federal & Community

    • [AER-6617] - (DEPLOYMENT) The Aerospike server may fail to start in containers with cgroup v1 when the available CPUs are a proper subset of the actual CPUs.

    • [AER-6618] - (EXPRESSIONS) Deleting a bin via a write operation expression will cause a crash.

    • [AER-6615] - (SMD) A module that is continually retransmitting may block another module's 'set' operations.

  • Enterprise & Federal Only

    • [AER-6619] - (BALANCE) For strong-consistency namespaces, a stale appeal acknowledgement may cause a crash.

    • [AER-6616] - (XDR) Removing connector seed nodes while a DC is disconnected may cause an assertion on reconnection.

Known Issues

  • If you use equality secondary index queries that return a small number of records, you may see a latency increase in server releases 6.0-6.2. The inline-short-queries configuration option provides a partial fix in server 6.3, and a more advanced fix is scheduled for server 6.4.

  • If your secondary index query only returns 0 records or 1 record, meaning that it is acting as a unique index, you should consider converting such a query to a get/exists operation by creating a self-managed reverse index (lookup table).

  • Spark Connector version 3.5 starts using batch writes when possible, a feature which was introduced in Aerospike server version 6.0. Consult the Spark Connector rate limiting documentation before you upgrade the server. Pay attention to throttling write throughput, and use Spark Connector 3.5.5 or later, which fixes throttling behavior to conform to the aerospike.transaction.rate.

  • There is a possibility of partial de-duplicate (repeated records) in secondary index query (SI query) responses for SI queries that use list or map type secondary indexes. Any record that satisfies such a query at least once will be included, but it is possible and normal to see a record more than once.
