Improvements, new features and functionality

  • Summary

    • Export to file. It is now possible to export the results of a query to a file. When exporting, the result set is not limited for filter queries, making it possible to export large amounts of data. Plain text, JSON and ND-JSON (Newline Delimited JSON) formats are supported in this version.

  • Functions

    • top() function. Find the most common values of a field.

    • format() function. Format a string using printf-style.

Bug Fixes

  • Summary

    • Performance improvement for searches using in particular "expensive" aggregates functions such as groupby and percentile.

    • Backup feature (using BACKUP_NAME in env) now stores files in a new format. If using this, you must either move the old files out of the way, or set BACKUP_NAME to a new value, thus pointing to an new backup directory. The new backup system will proceed to write a fresh backup in the designated folder. The new backup system no longer require use of "JCE policy files". Instead, it needs to run on java "1.8.0_161" or later. The current Humio docker images includes "1.8.0_162".

    • global-snapshots topic in Kafka: Humio now deletes the oldest snapshot after writing a new, keeping the latest 10 only.
