Installation Installing Percona Server for MongoDB

Percona Server for MongoDB 5.0.14-12 is an enhanced, source-available, and highly-scalable database that is a fully-compatible, drop-in replacement for MongoDB 5.0.14 Community Edition.

It supports MongoDB 5.0.14 protocols and drivers

Release Highlights

With this release, $backupCursor and $backupCursorExtend aggregation stages is now generally available, enabling you to use it for building custom backup solutions.

The bug fixes, provided by MongoDB and included in Percona Server for MongoDB, are the following:

  • SERVER-68477 - Fixed the bug where an unexpected behavior could negatively impact existing TTL indexes with improper configuration and could cause the sudden expiration of TTL-indexed documents in a collection. This sudden expiration could cause data to be aged out prior than planned and could negatively impact write performance.

    This bug involves TTL indexes with the expireAfterSeconds value of NaN (not-a-number). The TTL indexes are treated as 0 instead of NaN and that resulted in the sudden expiration of TTL-indexed documents in a collection. The bug affects MongoDB 5.0.0 through 5.0.13 and MongoDB 6.0.0 through 6.0.1.

    It could be hit on MongoDB 4.4/4.2 when initially syncing from a 5.0.0-5.0.13 or 6.0.0-6.0.1 node and on MongoDB 5.0.0-5.0.13 when restoring from a mongodump of 4.2 / 4.4 collection or initially syncing from a 4.2/4.4 node that has a TTL configured with expireAfterSeconds: NaN.

    The issue is fixed upstream in version 5.0.14 and 6.0.2. As the general recommendation, avoid using expireAfterSeconds: NaN as a configuration and correct this config anywhere it exists.

    Follow closely the upstream recommendations to detect affected indexes and modify them using the collMod command.

  • SERVER-70879 - Corrected a potential race condition where multiple writing threads can update collection metadata in a way where overwrites could possibly happen. This could cause data/documents to be either unavailable or lost.

  • SERVER-66289 - Fixed the issue with how the server handles batches of writes when running $out with secondary read preference by updating write size estimation logic in DocumentSourceWriter
  • SERVER-61185 - Improved the performance of inserts into unique indexes
  • SERVER-68115 - Prevented dropping empty path component from elemMatch path during index selection
