This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- Recording Cloud Backup Service (RCBS) now supports multi-threaded and multi-instance download. For multi-instance RCBS, the download of the recordings can be shared by different RCBS instances running in parallel. For multi-threaded RCBS, the download tasks and the post-processing tasks can be carried out by multiple threads within the RCBS process. (GIR-6981)
This release contains the following resolved issues:
Recording Cloud Backup Service (RCBS) now supports the minDate configuration parameter, which allows specifying the minAge with an absolute date instead of an offset value. (GIR-6834)
RCBS now supports disabling the download of the screen recording files through the configuration parameter. (GIR-6467)
RCBS now supports the shardBy parameter to resolve deep pagination. This parameter allows the user to instruct RCBS to query recordings during a smaller period of time, using a minAge and maxAge range. The default value is "1" (day). Previously, if a user specified an exceptionally long range using the minAge and maxAge values, RCBS sent the complete range all at once to RWS, causing RWS to occasionally time out and return an empty result due to an Elasticsearch deep pagination issue. (GIR-6429)
RCBS no longer encounters an exception, if the number of recordings on the system is divided equally to the pagination limit, and RWS returns the last page with empty results.
All metadata and recordings should be written to the disk. If the last page returns empty results, no additional recordings are processed and the error can be ignored. (GIR-6416)
RCBS no longer exports originalMediaDescriptor as part of the metadata export fields. (GIR-6008)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.260.59.
