What's New in GigaSpaces Version 16.1.1

Release Date: May-15-2022

This section describes product changes, along with new features and functionality for GigaSpaces release 16.1.1.


This version is early access, and there are currently no new features.

Data Pipeline Improvement – Data Freshness

Data freshness is defined as time lag between updating the system of record, and seeing the corresponding update in the In-Memory Data Grid. Grafana alerts can now be implemented that are triggered if data freshness exceeds a parameter-specified time interval.


SQL Optimization and Enhancements

Enhanced SQL support provides more options for CRUD operations, and includes improved support for DDL statements on our high-performance JDBD/ODBC-enabled SQL engine.


New Kubernetes Supported Properties

The new configMap and statefulSet properties allow greater flexibility in customizing Helm charts.


Built-In Support of Compound Space Id

A compound key for a Space ID can now be specified for Space Objects and Document Objects without requiring custom code.


Improved Memory Management

Checks for Out of Memory conditions are now also performed internally to database operations, providing more fine-tuned memory management..


Common Event Format (CEF) Logs

The CEF log format is now supported for system logs.


Improvements to Redo Log

The redo log, used to preserve data in the event of a system disconnection, is now available in a standard SQLite database format that can be browsed via SQL commands. Redo log reliability has been hardened by removing restrictions on the amount of data that can be preserved.


Third-Party Integration Updates

There are currently no third-party changes or updates.
