1.8.1

Bug fixes

Release Date: 2020-02-03
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.6.10
Requires data migrations: false
Has changes to configuration: true

This is a bug fix release.

Changelog

  • New feature for ephemeral servers: Let Zookeeper assign the UUID that in turn assigns the node ID in the cluster. This is turned on by setting the config option ZOOKEEPER_URL_FOR_NODE_UUID to the set of Zookeepers to use for this. The option ZOOKEEPER_PREFIX_FOR_NODE_UUID (default “/humioautouuid”) sets the prefix to allow rack awareness. Note: Do not turn this on for an existing cluster. Do not turn on if running older 1.7.x or 1.8.x builds.
  • Bug fix: Fix edge case errors in the regex engine. Some case insensitive searches for some Unicode characters were not supported correctly.
  • Bug fix: Avoid calling fallocate on platforms that do not support this (for example, ZFS).

Bug fixes and LDAP improvements.

Changelog

  • Username/email is treated case-insensitive in Humio. This is more expected behavior of usernames as emails addresses are often used. In some rare occasions duplicate accounts might have been created with difference in casing and this change can trigger the otherwise dormant account to be chosen when logging in the next time. If this happens, use the administrations page to delete the unwanted user account and let the user log in again.
  • LDAP: It is now possible to specify an attribute within the LDAP record to use for the username rather than the default (an email address). This is only the case when using ldap-search method by specifying the LDAP_USERNAME_ATTRIBUTE in the environment. Group names when using LDAP have historically been the distinguished name (DN) for that group, it is now possible to specify and attribute in the group record for the name by setting LDAP_GROUPNAME_ATTRIBUTE. These changes necessitated a breaking change in the ldap-search code path in cases where users of Humio authenticate with a username (e.g. user) rather than an email address (e.g. user@example.com). To elicit the same behavior as previous versions of Humio simply specify the LDAP_SEARCH_DOMAIN_NAME which in the past would default to the value of LDAP_DOMAIN_NAME but no longer does.
  • Add LDAP_USERNAME_ATTRIBUTE and LDAP_GROUPNAME_ATTRIBUTE configuration settings to enable more control over names carried from LDAP into Humio.
  • Require setting LDAP_SEARCH_DOMAIN_NAME explicitly when using ldap-search authentication method.
  • Bugfix: Query sessions were not properly cleaned up after becoming unused. This lead to a leak causing high amount of chatter between nodes.

1.6.9

Bug fixes

Release Date: 2019-11-25
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.5.19
Requires data migrations: false
Has changes to configuration: no - but see changes to backup in 1.6.6

Bug fixes and a new background job that reduces number of small files on disk.

Changelog

  • New background job: Find segments that are too small compared to the desired sizes (from current config) and merge them into larger files. For COMPRESSION_TYPE=high this will recompress the inputs while combining them. This job runs by default and may be turned off by MERGE_UNDERSIZED_SEGMENTS_ENABLED=false.
  • Detect when event ingested are more than MAX_HOURS_SEGMENT_OPEN (24h by default) old and add the tag humioBackfill to them in that case to keep “old” events from getting mixed with current “live” events.
  • Improved memory usage from having large global.
