vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5 | 15 Mar 2012

Last Document Update: 3 May 2012

What's in the Release Notes

The VMware® vFabric™ Hyperic® release notes cover the following topics:

What's New in vFabric Hyperic and Hyperic HQ 4.6.5.1

Version 4.6.5.1 of vFabric Hyperic and Hyperic HQ fixes a number of known issues. See Issues Fixed in vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5.1. and Issues Fixed in Hyperic HQ 4.6.5..

What's New in vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5 and Hyperic HQ 4.6.5

Except where noted, the following new features are included in both vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5 and Hyperic HQ 4.6.5.

Installation Sizing Profiles (vFabric Hyperic Only)

The vFabric Hyperic installer is enhanced to pre-configure the Hyperic Server based on the size of your Hyperic deployment.

When you run the vFabric Hyperic installer in -full mode, it prompts you to select a sizing profile based on the size of your Hyperic deployment. Depending on the volume of platforms you will manage, you choose a "small", "medium", or "large" sizing profile. Based on the profile you select, the installer sets the values of a variety of Hyperic Server properties in ServerHome\server.conf and ServerHome\hq-engine\hq-server\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\web.xml that specify the Java options used to start the Hyperic Server; the server's JMS memory limits; the Hyperic database connection pool size; and the number of threads available to the Hyperic Server's internal application server. In the Hyperic documentation, see "About Sizing Profiles in vFabric Hyperic" in vFabric Hyperic Installation and Configuration.

Note: In -upgrade mode, the vFabric Hyperic installer does not prompt for a sizing profile. As desired, you can select an installation profile after upgrading the vFabric Hyperic Server to 4.6.5, by running the installer again, using the new -updateScale qualifier. In the Hyperic documentation, see "Change vFabric Hyperic Server Sizing Profile" in vFabric Hyperic Installation and Configuration.

Agent Bundle Updated to JRE 1.6

Hyperic Agent packages that include a JRE have JRE 1.6.

JMX Port Closed by Default

The JVM's JMX port is closed by default. As a result, Hyperic does not automatically discover and monitor its internal ActiveMQ Server. hq-server.conf includes two new properties that you can use to enable the JMX port and set the JMX port number: server.jms.usejmx and server.jms.jmxport.

New Requirement for Changing Admin Account Password

You must supply the current administration account password in order to change it.

Requirements for Server Agent Plug-in Synchronization

The Server Agent Plug-in Synchronization (SAPS) process does not synchronize plugins on Hyperic Agents whose version is earlier than the Hyperic Server. The Hyperic 4.6.5 Server can only synchronize plugins on agents running the same or later version as the server. In the Hyperic documentation, see "Plug-in Deployment and Management" in vFabric Hyperic Administration.

New Server Property Defaults

The default values of two server properties are changed:

  • server.java.opts in ServerHome\conf\hq-server.conf now includes an additional Java option: -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC.
  • The default value of org.hyperic.lather.maxConns in ServerHome\hq-engine\hq-server\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\web.xml is now 3000. In previous versions of Hyperic, the default value of org.hyperic.lather.maxConns was 475.

New Server Properties for Tomcat Configuration

The file hq-server.conf includes two new properties you can use to configure the number of threads available to Hyperic Server's internal Tomcat server: tomcat.maxthreads and tomcat.minsparethreads, whose default values in Hyperic HQ are 500 and 50, respectively. If you manage more than fifty platforms, it may be appropriate to adjust these values. In the Hyperic documentation, see "Scaling and Tuning Hyperic Performance" in vFabric Hyperic Installation and Configuration for more about tomcat.maxthreads, tomcat.minsparethreads, and other server properties you can use to tune the Hyperic Server in large environments.

Updated Plugins

The following product plugins have been updated to support newer versions of the managed product:

  • vSphere plugin — updated to support vSphere 5.
  • JBoss plugin — updated to support JBoss 7.
  • Tomcat plugin — updated to support Tomcat 7.

In addition, see the plugin updates described in New Plugin Support Class for Event-Based Configuration Tracking.

New Plug-in Support Class for Event-Based Configuration Tracking

In Hyperic 4.6.5, a new plug-in support class —-- org.hyperic.hq.product.FileChangeTrackPlugin --— enables more detailed change tracking than available in previous versions of Hyperic. This plug-in tracks the change type ("add", "delete", "modify", or "rename") and the actual changes in text files.

In the Hyperic documentation, see "Log and Configuration Event Tracking" in vFabric Hyperic Overview for more about the configuration tracking functionality, and see "FileChangeTrackPlugin" in vFabric Hyperic Plug-in Development for more about the new support class.

In Hyperic 4.6.5 the following plug-ins have been updated to use FileChangeTrackPlugin:

  • Tomcat
  • Apache
  • WebSphere
  • WebLogic Server
  • JBoss
  • PostgreSQL
  • mySQL
  • Oracle

These plug-ins provide default Configuration File filters. Note that configuration tracking for these types is disabled by default. You can enable configuration tracking on the Configuration Properties page for a resource.

Enhancements to HQ Health Page

The HQ Health page, available on the Plug-ins section of the Administration tab in the Hyperic user interface, has two new tabs:

  • HQ Inventory — Resource types currently in Hyperic inventory, and the number of resources of each type.
  • Maintenance — Database maintenance commands you can run to remove orphaned resources from the Hyperic Database.

For more information, in the Hyperic documentation, see "ui-HQHealth" in vFabric Hyperic User Interface.

Changed Behavior for Delete Platform Command

If you delete all platforms that a Hyperic Agent manages, the Hyperic Server also removes the saved authentication token for that agent from the Hyperic database. So if you delete a platform that is managed by an agent that does not manage any other platforms (as in the case of an agent that manages only the platform it runs on), the agent can no longer connect to the Hyperic Server. If you do want the agent to rediscover the platform where it runs, you must repeat the agent setup process.

Hyperic 4.6.5 Documentation Site and Documentation for Earlier Releases

Hyperic 4.6.5 documentation, including downloadable PDFs, is available in the vFabric 5.1 Documentation Center. Documentation for Hyperic 4.6.5 and later releases will not be available on http://support.hyperic.com. Documentation for previous versions of Hyperic is still available on http://support.hyperic.com.

Known Issues in vFabric Hyperic and Hyperic HQ 4.6.5.1

Known Issues in vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5.1

This section lists the known issues in vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5.1. vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5.1 also includes the issues listed in Known Issues in Hyperic HQ 4.6.5.1.

LDAP Authorization Issue In vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5.0, LDAP authorization fails, and a stack trace is generated. The problem is fixed in In vFabric Hyperic 4.6.5.1. For more information see https://jira.hyperic.com/browse/HQ-3828.

Failover Issue with with a PostgreSQL 9.x Hyperic Database In environments that use an external PostgreSQL 9.x server for the Hyperic database, the second node in a Hyperic Server cluster fails to start. The problem occurs relates because, by default, PostreSQL 9 uses a new hex format for I/O (the bytea datatype) that Hyperic's PostgreSQL 8.2 driver does not support.

To work around this issue, you can configure the PostgreSQL server to use the escaped format, which the Hyperic Server's PosgreSQL driver supports, instead of hex. To do so, run this command before starting the nodes in the Hyperic Server cluster:

ALTER DATABASE SET bytea_output='escape';

For more information, see Section 3.1 on http://postgis.refractions.net/docs/PostGIS_FAQ.html.
