Percona Distribution for MongoDB 4.4.14 (2022-05-25)¶
May 25, 2022
Percona Distribution for MongoDB is a freely available MongoDB database alternative, giving you a single solution that combines enterprise components from the open source community, designed and tested to work together. The aim of Percona Distribution for MongoDB is to enable you 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 source-available, 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.
To make physical backups and restores, the
pbm-agent must have the read / write access to the
dataDir. If you use the filesystem-based backup storage, the
pbm-agent must also have the read / write access to the backup directory. Therefore, starting from version 1.7.0, the user running the
pbm-agent is changed from
mongod in Percona Backup for MongoDB packages.
To upgrade Percona Backup for MongoDB to version 1.7.0, do the following:
Upgrade new version packages
systemdprocess to update the unit file with the following command:
$ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
If you have a filesystem-based backup storage, grant read / write permissions to the backup directory to the
If MongoDB runs under a different user than mongod (the default configuration for Percona Server for MongoDB), use the same user to run the
pbm-agent. For filesystem-based storage, grant the read / write permissions to the backup directory for this user.
This release of Percona Distribution for MongoDB includes improvements and bug fixes, provided by MongoDB and included in Percona Server for MongoDB. The most notable from them are the following:
Support of the master key rotation for data encrypted using the Keys Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) protocol (tech preview feature). This improvement allows users to comply with regulatory standards for data security.
Fixed the issue where having a large number of split points causes the chunk splitter to not function correctly and huge chunks would not be split without manual intervention. This can be caused when having small shard key ranges and a very high number of documents and where more than 8192 split points would be needed.
repairShardedCollectionChunksHistorycommand to restore history fields for some chunks. This aims to fix broken snapshot reads and distributed transactions.
Fixed incorrect logging of queryHash/planCacheKey for operations that share the same
Added a new startup parameter that skips verifying the table logging settings on restarting as a replica set node from the standalone mode during the restore. This speeds up the restore process.
Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.7.0 improvements include the following:
Support for physical backups in Percona Server for MongoDB starting from versions 4.2.15-16 and 4.4.6-8 and higher. Physical backups drastically speed up backup and restore performance for large databases (several terabytes). This is a technical preview feature.
Oplog replay from the arbitrary start time. This reduces Recovery Point Objective (RPO) when database is recovered from physical or storage-level backups.
Ability to configure compression method and level for point-in-time recovery chunks and compression level for backups.
Ability to configure the number of S3 multipart upload chunks to comply with various S3-compatible storage provider requirements.
Ability to configure the number of upload retries. This facilitates data upload in case of unstable network connection.
