Resolved issues

  • RS101204 - Fixed high memory consumption that was caused by the persistence_mgr service when AOF persistence is configured for every second.

  • RS39322 , RS35526 - rlcheck no longer requires root privileges and can run with the redislabs group and user.

  • RS97315, RS100853 - Fixed the robustness of the support package process when collecting the shard configuration.

  • RS65110 - Fixed firewalld SELinux configuration.

  • RS101691 - Clean false error messages at the end of installation.

Known limitations

Feature limitations

  • RS78430 - When tuning module arguments, typos or unsupported arguments can cause shards to get stuck after restarting.

  • RS40641 - API requests are redirected to an internal IP in case the request arrives from a node which is not the master. To avoid this issue, use rladmin cluster config to configure handle_redirects or handle_metrics_redirects.

Operating system limitations

Ubuntu 20.04

By default, you cannot use the SHA1 hash algorithm (OpenSSL’s default security level is set to 2). The operating system will reject SHA1 certificates even if the mtls_allow_weak_hashing option is enabled. You need to replace SHA1 certificates with newer certificates that use SHA-256. Note that the certificates provided with Redis Enterprise Software use SHA-256.
