Satellite migration to cockroach
Next week we are going to migrate the satellite databases to cockroach one by one. You will notice order sender errors and checkin errors doing the downtime. Keep an eye on the announcement channel.
Let us know if you want to help us testing everything. Storj-sim is able to connect to a cockroach cluster.
For Storage Node Operators
Some of you might notice the new notification section on the storage node webUI (refresh CRTL + F5). At the moment nothing can trigger a notification.
Graceful exit is finally available. Careful there are a few traps and requirements. Before you call it please read this carefully: Graceful Exit Guide
The satellite was missing a timeout on sending out the bloomfilters. As a result some satellites never finished the first garbage collection run. You might notice additional garbage collection activity with this release.
Performance improvements on delete
To delete a segment the uplink had to contact up to 80 storage nodes. We moved this communication from the uplink to the satellite. Now the uplink only has to delete the segment from the satellite and the satellite will send delete messages to the 80 storage nodes in the background.
Delete files without encryption key
Losing the encryption key also means losing access to all corresponding files because even the file path is encrypted. We have implemented a solution to that problem.
uplink ls sj://bucket --encrypted will print out the encrypted path and that can be used for
uplink rm sj://bucket/... --encrypted.
