Message Server 8.5.x Release Notes
|Release Date||Release Type||Restrictions||AIX||Linux||Solaris||Windows|
This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- The enable-thread option in the [log] section of the Message Server Application Template options is now set to the default value (false). If you want to use the log throttling feature with Message Server, you must explicitly change the value of this option.
This release contains the following resolved issue:
When Message Server is running on UNIX and is configured to connect directly to the DBMS (the default behaviour), it no longer generates zombie (defunct) dbclient processes when it is having connectivity issues with the DBMS.
Previously in this scenario, Message Server sometimes experienced connectivity issues with the DBMS and generated zombie (defunct) dbclient processes when it tried to reconnect. The longer Message Server was unable to reconnect to the DBMS, the more zombie (defunct) processes were created, consuming memory. The only way to solve the problem was to stop the main Message Server process. (MFWK-16271)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.100.00.
