Percona Distribution for MongoDB 4.2.21 (2022-06-29)¶
June 29, 2022
Percona Distribution for MongoDB is a collection of solutions to run and operate your MongoDB efficiently with the data being consistently backed up.
Percona Distribution for MongoDB includes the following components:
Percona Server for MongoDB is a fully compatible open source, drop-in replacement for MongoDB.
Percona Backup for MongoDB is a distributed, low-impact solution for achieving consistent backups of MongoDB sharded clusters and replica sets.
This release of Percona Distribution for MongoDB provides the following improvements to the data-at-rest encryption using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) (tech preview feature):
the support of multiple KMIP servers as the failover to your setup
the ability to set KMIP client certificate passwords through a flag to simplify the migration from MongoDB Enterprise to Percona Server for MongoDB
Added support for Ubuntu 22.04 for Percona Server for MongoDB and Percona Backup for MongoDB.
The bug fixes, provided by MongoDB and included in Percona Server for MongoDB 4.2.20-20 and Percona Distribution for MongoDB 4.2.20 are the following:
getParametercommand output with the information about a parameter to be enabled on runtime or only on startup
Ensured that applying schema validation rules to a non-empty collection prevents chunk migration for the data that existed before these rules were applied.
CollectionCatalogworkflow by making hashing before taking a lock and adding an API for restoring after yield.
Fixed the issue with cache eviction causing deadlocks by allowing a transaction to time itself out
Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.8.0 improvements include the following:
Ability to restore data to a replica set with a different name and configuration. This extends the list of environments compatible for the restore.
When you use EBS-snapshots or other tools for physical backups, you no longer have to create a mandatory base backup snapshot in Percona Backup for MongoDB as the starting point for Point-in-Time Recovery oplog slicing. This reduces time and effort on managing excessive backups and makes Point-in-time recovery from physical or storage-level backups more straightforward.
The ability to wait for the backup operation to finish before doing further actions through the session lock. This simplifies the automation of operations with Percona Backup for MongoDB.
Ability to define backup compression level and method in Percona Backup for MongoDB configuration.
To simplify the Percona Backup for MongoDB configuration, the example configuration file is now included in the Percona Backup for MongoDB package.
