Last week in scylla-cluster-tests.git master (issue #32; 2023-12-16)

This brief update highlights some intriguing commits to the scylla-cluster-tests.git master from the past week. The range of commits covered is 3d323707…d3c93ecd.

During this period, there were 18 non-merge commits made by 5 authors. Here are some of the notable changes:

A new ‘hydra’ version was released, featuring updated k8s components.

In the OSS->Enterprise upgrade path, we now recover system tables from a snapshot while performing node rollback. This change was made to test the upgrade path and avoid the malformed_sstable_exception error.

We also updated the Scylla-manager version in K8s tests to 3.2.5. The latest version now supports ARM instance types.

Work has been outlined for restructuring the Jenkins jobs, which will allow us to have greater control and the ability to extend it when necessary.

As COMPACT STORAGE is being deprecated, we have removed its setting in the code. However, we will continue to test it in functional tests.

Lastly, we are gearing up for testing Scylla Kafka connectors on a large scale and have prepared a design for testing it.

Stay tuned for the next issue of last week in scylla-cluster-tests.git master!
