  • Added better support for removing stale partition mappings when a Xen virtual server is deleted.
  • Improved wildcard search when search the virtual server list.
  • Added mass-callback script for updating all hostnames and ipaddresses via the callback system. See /scripts/mass-callback –help

  • If you have issues with false positive connection error alerts, there is now an optional flag you can add to /usr/local/solusvm/data/config.ini on the master. Set extra_pass_on_fail = true to run a second check if the first fails before sending an email.
  • Several logical volume settings have been added for KVM slave nodes. Settings are available in /usr/local/solusvm/data/config.ini This enables you to pass the following flags when a virtual servers logical volume is created:
    lvcreate (-i) stripes (default not set). Numeric value only
    lvcreate_stripes = 1
    lvcreate (-I) stripesize (default not set). Numeric value only
    lvcreate_stripe_size = 512
    lvcreate (-c) chunksize (default not set). Numeric value only
    lvcreate_chunk_size = 512
    lvcreate (-aey) Use the -aey flag to activate logical volume exclusively
    on the host node (true\|false)
    lvcreate_aey = false
  • Several changes have been made to the master's SQL indexing to improve performance when searching and data usage is being collected.
