Bug fixes

The following issues are resolved with this hotfix.


(SINDEX) For storage-backed data-in-memory namespaces, rebuilding secondary indexes during cold start may generate spurious warnings.

Editions affected: Community, Enterprise, & Federal


(KVS) Aerospike is compatible with Linux kernels supporting a 4K memory page size. Larger page sizes cause memory allocation incompatibilities for jemalloc and mmap-based features such as indexes in flash or PMem.

Some RHEL 7 and RHEL 8 variants for 64-bit ARM have changed their default kernels to a 64K memory page size, and are therefore no longer supported. Aerospike users with deployments on these operating system versions must upgrade to one whose kernel has a 4K page size. This includes all 64-bit ARM RHEL 9 variants where RedHat reversed the default page size to 4K. Amazon Linux 2 and Amazon Linux 2023 on 64-bit ARM are not affected.
