Changes Worth Mentioning

Core Server


  • Free disk space monitor robustness improvements.

Backported by @drencrom (Canonical).

GitHub issue: #5739

  • raft.adaptive_failure_detector.poll_interval exposes aten's poll_interval setting to
    RabbitMQ users. Increasing it can reduce the probability of false positives in clusters where
    inter-node communication links are used at close to maximum capacity.
    The default is 5000 (5 seconds).

GitHub issue: #6632

  • When both disk_free_limit.relative and disk_free_limit.absolute,
    or both vm_memory_high_watermark.relative and vm_memory_high_watermark.absolute are set,
    the absolute settings will now take precedence.
