1.16.0

Improved alerts and addition of ingest timestamps

Release Date: 2020-10-09
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.12.0
Requires data migrations: true
Has changes to configuration: true

This release promotes the latest 1.15 release from preview to stable.

New features

Ingest timestamps

Humio will set ingest timestamps on all events. This is set in the field named @ingesttimestamp. In later versions, Humio will also support specifying the search time interval using @ingesttimestamp when searching. This will support use cases where data is backfilled etc.

Alerts and notifiers

Field based throttling

It is now possible to make an alert throttle based on a field, so that new values for the field trigger the alert, but already seen values do not until the throttle period has elapsed. See docs.

Notifier logging to a Humio repository

It is now possible to configure an alert notifier that will log all events to a Humio repository. See docs.

Slack notifier upgrade to notify multiple Slack channels

It is now possible to use the Slack notifier to notify multiple Slack channels at once. See docs.

Events as HTML table

In an email notifier, it is now possible to format the events as an HTML table using the new message template {events_html}. Currently, the order of the columns is not well-defined. This problem will be fixed in the 1.17.0 release. See docs.

Configure notifier to not use the internet proxy

It is now possible to configure an alert notifier to not use the HTTP proxy configured in Humio. See docs.

User signup/login flow

Signup & Login

Redesigned signup/login pages. For cloud, we have have split the behavior so users have to explicitly either login or signup.

Invite flow

When adding a user to Humio they will now by default get an email telling them that they have been invited to use Humio. See docs.

Configure Humio to not use the internet proxy for S3

It is now possible to configure Humio to not use the globally configured HTTP proxy for communcation with S3. See docs.

Auto-balanced partition table suggestions

When changing digest and storage partitions it is now possible to get auto-balanced suggestions based on node zone and replication factor settings (via ZONE, DIGEST_REPLICATION_FACTOR and STORAGE_REPLICATION_FACTOR configurations). See docs.

Breaking changes

AWS Java SDK V2

The AWS SDK Humio uses has been upgraded to v2. When configuring Humio bucket storage with Java system properties, the access key must now be in the aws.secretAccessKey property instead of the aws.secretKey property.

1.14.3

Bug fixes and improved query scheduling.

Release Date: 2020-09-24
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.12.0
Requires data migrations: false
Has changes to configuration: false

Bug fixes and improved query scheduling.

Changelog

  • Fix missing cache update when deleting a view.
  • Add logging to detect issues when truncating finished files.

    • local-query-jobs-queue: Count queries currently queued or active on node including exports
    • local-query-segments-queue-exports-part: Count of elements in queue as number of segments currently queued for query for exports
    • local-query-jobs-queue-exports-part: Count queries currently queued or active on node for exports

1.14.1

Bug fixes

Release Date: 2020-09-08
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.12.0
Requires data migrations: false
Has changes to configuration: false

Bug fixes

Changelog

  • Improve performance when processing streaming queries.
  • Remove restriction on length of group names from LDAP.
  • Remove restriction on expire time when creating emergency user through the emergency user API. See Emergency Access.

1.14.0

Free text search, Load balancing of queries and TLS support.

Release Date: 2020-08-26
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.12.0
Requires data migrations: true
Has changes to configuration: true

This release promotes the latest 1.13 release from preview to stable.

Free text search now searches all fields rather than only the @rawstring field.

Load balancing of queries

Humio can now balance and reuse existing queries internally in the cluster. Load balancer configuration to achieve this is no longer needed. See Reverse proxy configuration and Humio Configuration.

TLS support

TLS Encrypt communication using TLS to/from Zookeeper, Kafka, and other Humio nodes.

Iplocation database management changed

The database used as data source for the ipLocation() query function must be updated within 30 days when a new version of the database is made public by MaxMind. To comply with this, the database is no longer shipped as part of the Humio artifacts but will either:

  • Be fetched automatically by Humio provided that Humio is allowed to connect to the db update service hosted by Humio. This is the default behaviour.
  • Have to be updated manually (See ipLocation())

If the database cannot be automatically updated and no database is provided manually, the ipLocation() query function will no longer work.

Configuration change: Controlling what nodes to use as query coordinators

Due to the load balancing in Humio, customers that previously relied on load balancing to control which nodes are query coordinators now need to set QUERY_COORDINATOR to false on nodes they do not want to become query coordinators. See Reverse proxy configuration and Humio Configuration.

To see more details, go through the individual 1.13.x release notes (links in the changelog).

Changelog

  • Major changes: 1.13.0
  • Other changes: 1.13.1
  • Other changes: 1.13.2
  • Other changes: 1.13.3
  • Other changes: 1.13.4
  • Other changes: 1.13.5
  • Improved handling of query restarts to avoid unnecessary restarts in some scenarios.
  • Handling of digest in the case where a node has been offline for a long time has been improved. As an example, running a Humio cluster with a replication factor of 2 and having one node go offline for a long time would leave some ingested data to only reside on one Humio node (and on the ingest queue in Kafka). But this data would not be regarded as properly replicated until the second node returned. If the only node that was left handling a digest partition did a failover, Humio would end up going far back on the Kafka ingest queue to reread data. This has been changed. Now another node from the set of digest nodes will take over if a node goes offline, to keep the replication factor as desired . This means that other hosts, than those specified for a given digest partition on the cluster management page, can actually be handling the digest data for that partition. Only digest nodes will be selected as hosts.

Release Date: 2020-06-24
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.10.0
Requires data migrations: false
Has changes to configuration: false

Bug fixes - Safari freeze, SAML, bucket storage cleanup, regex and field-aliasing

  • Fixed an issue with CSP that could cause the Humio UI to freeze on Safari browsers
  • Fixed an issue that prevented deletion of unused objects in bucket storage, if the bucket contained 100 millions of objects or more
  • Fixed an issue with SAML IDPs requiring query parameters to be passed via the configuration SAML_IDP_SIGN_ON_URL
  • Fixed an issue where queries using lookahead in regex would fail to parse - “invalid or unsupported Perl syntax”

1.12.0

Export to bucket, findTimestamp, selfjoin, Emergency user subsystem

Release Date: 2020-06-09
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.10.0
Requires data migrations: true
Has changes to configuration: true

This release promotes the 1.11 releases from preview to stable.

SelfJoin

selfJoin query function allows selecting log lines that share an identifier; for which there exists (separate) log lines that match a certain filtering criteria; such as “all log lines with a given userid for which there exists a successful and an unsuccessful login”.

findTimestamp

findTimestamp query function will try to find and parse timestamps in incoming data. The function should be used in parsers and support automatic detection of timestamps. It can be used instead of making regular expressions specifying where to find the timestamp and parsing it with parseTimestamp Checkout the documentation for details.

Export to bucket storage/S3

As an alternative to downloading streaming queries directly, Humio can now upload them to an S3 or GCS bucket from which the user can download the data. See docs

Emergency user subsystem

If there are issues with the identity provider that Humio is configured to use, it might not be possible to log in to Humio. To mitigate this, Humio now provides emergency users that can be created locally within the Humio cluster. See docs

Elastic Bulk API change - Fluent Bit users might need to change the Fluent Bit configuration

To ensure compatability with the newest Beats clients, the Elastic Bulk API has been changed to always return the full set of status information for all operations, as it is done in the official Elastic API

This can however cause problems when using Fluent Bit to ingest data into Humio.

Fluent Bit in default configuration uses a small buffer (4KB) for responses from the Elastic Bulk API, which causes problems when enough operations are bulked together. The response will then be larger than the response buffer as it contains the status for each individual operation. Make sure the response buffer is large enough, otherwise Fluent Bit will stop shipping data. See: https://github.com/fluent/fluent-bit/issues/2156 and https://docs.fluentbit.io/manual/pipeline/outputs/elasticsearch

Release Date: 2020-04-27
Minimum previous Humio version: 1.8.5
Requires data migrations: true
Has changes to configuration: true

RBAC, Health Check API, Kafka, Vega

This release promotes the 1.9 releases from preview to stable. The main new additions are:

Security fixes

Kafka version update

  • Updated Humio to use Kafka 2.4. Humio can still use versions of Kafka down through 1.1.
  • Be aware that updating Kafka also requires you to update Zookeeper to 3.5.6. There is a migration involved in updating Zookeeper. See Zookeeper’s migration FAQ here. Use the migration approach using an empty snapshot. The other proposed solution can loose data.
  • Updated Kafka and Zookeeper Docker images to use Kafka 2.4. Updating to Kafka 2.4 should be straightforward using Humio’s Kafka/Zookeeper Docker images. Zookeper image will handle migration. Stop all Kafka nodes. Stop all Zookeeper nodes. Start all Zookeeper nodes on the new version. Start all Kafka nodes on the new version. Before updating Kafka/Zookeeper, we recommend backing up the Zookeeper data directory. Then, add the Zookeeper properties described below. If you are deploying Kafka/Zookeeper using other tools, for example Ansible scripts, be aware there is a migration involved in updating Zookeeper.
  • When updating Kafka/Zookeeper we recommend setting these Zookeeper properties

    # Do not start the new admin server. Default port 8080 conflicts with Humio port.
    admin.enableServer=false
    # purge old snapshot files
    autopurge.purgeInterval=1
    # Allow 4 letter commands. Used by Humio to get info about the Zookeeper cluster
    4lw.commands.whitelist=*
    

New features

  • Several improvements to Query Functions
  • NetFlow support extended to also support IPFIX.
  • Added humio Health Check APIs
  • Chart styling support (Pie, Bar)
  • Time Chart series roll-up
  • Replaces chart library with Vega, can be disabled using the ENABLE_VEGA_CHARTS=false flag.
  • Linear interpolation now default. New interpolation type: Basis
  • Control widget stylying directly from dashboards
  • Support for controlling color and title in widgets
  • Add Role Based Access Control (RBAC) to the Humio UI
  • New line interpolation options
  • Dealing with missing data points in timecharts

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 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.

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.
