Bug fixes and updates.

Advanced Warning

The following items are due to change in a future release.


Items that have been deprecated and may be removed in a future release.

  • The assetType GraphQL field on Alert, Dashboard, Parser, SavedQuery and ViewInteraction datatypes has been deprecated and will be removed in version 1.136 of LogScale.

  • The any argument to the type parameter of sort() and table() has been deprecated and will be removed in version 1.142.

    Warnings prompts will be shown in queries that fall into either of these two cases:

    • If you are explicitly supplying an any argument, please either simply remove both the parameter and the argument, for example change sort(..., type=any) to sort(...) or supply the argument for type that corresponds to your data.

    • If you are sorting hexadecimal values by their equivalent numerical values, please change the argument of type parameter to hex e.g. sort(..., type=hex).

    In all other cases, no action is needed.

    The new default value for sort() and table() will be number. Both functions will fall back to lexicographical ordering for values that cannot be understood as the provided argument for type.

  • In the GraphQL API, the ChangeTriggersAndAction enum value for both the Permission and ViewAction enum is now deprecated and will be removed in version 1.136 of LogScale.

  • The humio Docker image is deprecated in favor of humio-core. humio is no longer considered suitable for production use, as it runs Kafka and Zookeeper on the same host as LogScale, which our deployment guidelines no longer recommend. The final release of humio Docker image will be in version 1.130.0.

    The new humio-single-node-demo image is an all-in-one container suitable for quick and easy demonstration setups, but which is entirely unsupported for production use.

    For more information, see Installing Using Containers.

  • We are deprecating the humio/kafka and humio/zookeeper Docker images due to low use. The planned final release for these images will be with LogScale 1.148.0.

    Better alternatives are available going forward. We recommend the following:

    • If your cluster is deployed on Kubernetes: STRIMZI

    • If your cluster is deployed to AWS: MSK

    If you still require humio/kafka or humio/zookeeper for needs that cannot be covered by these alternatives, please contact Support and share your concerns.

  • In the GraphQL API, the name argument to the parser field on the Repository datatype has been deprecated and will be removed in version 1.136 of LogScale.

Improvements, new features and functionality

  • Configuration

    • Ingest rate monitoring for autosharding improved. For clusters with more than 10 nodes, only a subset of the nodes will be reporting their ingest rate for any given datasource, and the total rate for each datasource estimated based on that. The dynamic configuration TargetMaxRateForDatasource still sets the threshold for sharding; however, once the rate is exceeded, it is no longer needed to be twice the TargetMaxRateForDatasource configuration before shards are added.

  • Ingestion

    • Ingest feeds can read from an AWS SQS queue that has been populated with AWS SNS subscription events.

      For more information, see Ingesting Data from AWS S3.

Bug Fixes

  • UI Changes

    • Field aliases could not be read on the sandbox repository. This issue is now fixed.

  • Other

    • An issue with the IOC Configuration causing the local database to update too often has now been fixed.

  • Packages

    • Updating a package could fail, if one of the assets from the package had been deleted from the view where the package was installed. This issue has been fixed.
