What's New

This release contains the following new features and enhancements:

  • Genesys Pulse Collector now supports adding a default insensitivity value to statistic requests. The insensitivity value sets a minimum threshold for the degree of change in the statistic value before a data change notification will be sent. Using even small insensitivity values (for example, a value of 1) might help to decrease traffic between Stat Server and Genesys Pulse Collector significantly in data-intensive deployments. The following new options in the [statistic-request-handling] section are intended to control of adding the default insensitivity:
    • default-insensitivity-percentage
      Valid Values: 0-10000
      Default Value: 0
      Change takes effect: After restart
      The amount of relative change (in percentage) in the value of floating-point statistics required to generate a data change notification. The insensitivity value is added to all floating-point statistic requests. The default value of 0 (zero) means no insensitivity value will be added.
    • default-insensitivity-absolute-value
      Valid Values: 0-1000000
      Default Value: 0
      Change takes effect: After restart
      The amount of absolute change in the value of long integer statistics required to generate a data change notification. The insensitivity value is added to all long integer statistic requests. The default value of 0 (zero) means no insensitivity value will be added.
  • For StatServer Data Provider and Formula Processor the following new configuration options are added :
    • AeronPublisher.driver_timeout
      Valid Values: Any positive integer
      Default Value: 2000
      Change takes effect: After restart
      The amount of time, in milliseconds, that the publisher waits until it determines that the Aeron driver is unavailable.
    • AeronSubscriber.driver_timeout
      Valid Values: Any positive integer
      Default Value: 2000
      Change takes effect: After restart
      The amount of time, in milliseconds, that the subscriber waits until it determines that the Aeron driver is unavailable.
  • Genesys Pulse Collector now preserves the last available data in the layout when disconnected from Stat Server. Inaccurate data might be shown until all data is refreshed.
  • Genesys Pulse Collector configured with an embedded DB Server supports Oracle 12c and Oracle 12c RAC.
  • Genesys Pulse Collector now supports a new configuration section, [tags]. Any options configured in the [tags] section are preserved as is and not checked in any way.
  • Aeron transport is available on Windows.
  • Genesys Pulse Collector now supports running Formula Processor and StatServer Data Provider as a Windows service, with the following new command line options:
    • --install[=INSTANCE_NAME]
      Creates a Windows service for the microservice. If an instance name is not specified, then the name of the service is ExecutableName. If the instance name is provided, then the name of the service is ExecutableName#<INSTANCE_NAME>. If additional command line options are specified, they will be used to run the service.
    • --remove[=INSTANCE_NAME]
      Removes a Windows service for the microservice. If an instance name is not specified, then the name of the service is ExecutableName. If the instance name is provided, then the name of the service is ExecutableName#<INSTANCE_NAME>.
    In addition, the following command line options are changed
    • --service[=INSTANCE_NAME]
      The microservice is running as a system service
      • On Windows, the option is added automatically during the creation of the service and should not be used directly by the user.
      • On Linux, if the option is specified in the command line, then the microservice is running in the background.
    • The short option -s is no longer supported.
  • Support for CentOS Linux 7 operating system. See the Genesys Pulse page in the Genesys Supported Operating Environment Reference Guide for more detailed information and a list of all supported operating systems.
  • Support for the following databases. See the Genesys Pulse page in the Genesys Supported Operating Environment Reference Guide for more detailed information and a list of all supported databases.
    • PostgreSQL 10
    • Oracle 12c R2
    • Oracle 12c R2 RAC


Resolved Issues

This release contains the following resolved issues:


Genesys Pulse Collector no longer creates two sets of database clients in the dbclients_next folder. The following new options in the [embedded-dbserver] section enable you to specify the location of Genesys DB client executables used with an embedded DB Server. Option names replicate corresponding option names of the standalone Genesys DB Server.

  • msql_name
    Valid Values: Any valid path
    Default Value: empty
    Change takes effect: After restart
    Specifies the path to the Genesys DB client executable for Microsoft SQL Server. If the option is not specified or has an empty value, the platform-specific default is used, which targets the platform-specific DB client executable located under path ./dbclients.
  • oracle_name
    Valid Values: Any valid path
    Default Value: empty
    Change takes effect: After restart
    Specified path to Genesys DB client executable for Oracle. If the option is not specified or has an empty value, the platform-specific default is used, which targets the platform-specific DB client executable located under path ./dbclients.
  • postgre_name
    Valid Values: Any valid path
    Default Value: empty
    Change takes effect: After restart
    Specified path to Genesys DB client executable for PostgreSQL. If the option is not specified or has an empty value, the platform-specific default is used, which targets the platform-specific DB client executable located under path ./dbclients.
