Release Notes: An issue with command parsing has been resolved.
Release Notes: A major issue with the "tcpopen" health-check in multithreading mode has been resolved.
Release Notes: The thread synchronization debugging library has been disabled to optimize for speed.
Release Notes: Two new SNMP Objects have been implemented (sessionsCreated and serverSessionsCreated). The "snapshot" command now generates a snapshot without a full session table dump. A new "snapshot-full" command has been implemented. The "show uptime" command now additionally displays the uptime in hours, minutes, and seconds. A new parameter "pthreadstacksize" has been introduced. Several issues with the multithreading scheduler have been resolved, and an upgrade is recommended for all setups being operated in multithreading mode.
Release Notes: The output of "show threads" is now included in the snapshot information. A new command "show maxbucket" has been implemented. The display of the length of the largest bucket list has been moved from the command "show stinfo" to the new "show maxbucket" command.Some unnecessary warning messages in the mutithreading scheduler are now supressed.The license revocation list has been updated. The manual has been updated accordingly.
Release Notes: A new multithreading scheduler has been implemented (activated by "set multithreading 1"). The new directive "interface N threads" controls the number of threads per interface (if the multithreading scheduler is active). A new informational command "show threads" shows thread information (if multithreading is activated). A minor bug has been fixed, server "-1" is no longer reported when there's no 1:1 server/target relationship. A new module "crossover" allows the implementation of a virtual crossover cable (Linux only). The manual has been updated accordingly.
Release Notes: Specific LOG_INFO syslog messages have been introduced on bng start, stop, and reload. The host operating system architecture is logged on startup. Special Solaris DLPI timing issues have been resolved. The Solaris bnx0 interface is now recognized as "primary interface". A "bng reload" is now refused after a vrrp priority change.
Release Notes: An issue with "ICMP Fragmentation Needed" packet forwarding has been fixed. "bng stop" now uses SIGTERM, SIGHUP, and SIGKILL in that order. A new command "inject" allows packet injections from a PCAP file for debugging and QA purposes.
Release Notes: Outdated session table entries are now reclaimed very quickly on an idle BalanceNG system. The rate per second is controlled by the new parameter "sessiongclimit".
Release Notes: "ICMP Fragmentation Needed" packets are now forwarded to all associated targets of a virtual server (DSR mode only).
