Release Notes 2.6.4

Date: 23 JAN 2019

New Features and Enhancements

Component: Data Ingestion and Synchronization

  • IPD-6117: Support for Ingesting Mainframe Data Files Using CopyBook Layout

    Users can now ingest sequential files generated from mainframe systems with the corresponding copybook layout as schema. It supports different file organizations in data files, for example, fixed_byte_enter_font, fixed_char_enter_font, text_byte_enter_font.

  • Support for Micro-Seconds in Epoch
    Derived-based epoch partitioning now supports epoch in micro seconds. Earlier, derived-based epoch partitioning supported only seconds and milliseconds.

Updates and Fixes

  • IPD-6495: MapR-DB Target Failure Issue Fix in Pipelines
    Pipeline batch builds failed when MapR-DB target was used. This issue was because the MapR-DB target failed to read the HDFS location of MapR table which has now been fixed.
  • Streaming Ingestion Scale Issue Fix
    Race condition is now handled in code when multiple topics are subscribed at once.
