IGI Release (based on EMI/UMD) 04 - 17/10/2012

Dear site-admins,

There are available new services in IGI Release, based on middleware services developed by IGI & EMI:

  • first release of HLR Server (Service) v. 4.0, SL5/86_64
  • updated version of DGAS Sensors, v. 4.0.13, available both for SL5 & SL6, x86_64, corresponding to EMI 1 & EMI 2

Release Notes:

  • HLR Server:
    • software now installs under standard file system path
    • DB management code refactoring resulting in overall increased performances
    • improved service architecture to include ActiveMQ message consume
    • introduction of Apache Active MQ transport layer to fetch record from compatible CEs.
    • pluggable architecture for parsing records coming through the ActiveMQ consumer
    • added parsing capability for OGF UR v1.0 and EMICAR v1.0 (when feeded through ActiveMQ)
    • New algorithm to determine records that still need to e sent to upper level HLRs. This avoids the infamous 'republish all' bug.
    • Added bulk insert for records on second level HLRs. This increases performances.

  • DGAS Sensors:
    • the collector daemon now processes always file in forward direction (from older to newer record).
    • improvements have been made in logging calls with log messages being buffered. This allows to lower the CE resource consumption.
    • cycle throttling is now being performed on with random sleep times allowing for better performance.
    • it is now possible to set a timeout for plugin producers called by the pushd daemon.
    • emicar record format plugin is now available.
    • the activemq record publisher has been refactored. Allowing for a broader range of options of the JMS specificatio nto be used.
    • a file input version of the pushd daemon is available as well. Allows to publish over AMQ third-party produced messages.
    • added collectorPollInterval to configuration parameters. Allow to slow down collector idle cycle independently from pushd for better tuning of performance consumption.
