Last week in scylladb.git master (issue #170; 2023-03-05)

This short report brings to light some interesting commits to scylladb.git master from the last week. Commits in the ba919aa88a…4b71f87594 range are covered.

There were 96 non-merge commits from 16 authors in that period. Some notable commits:

There is a new metric for prepared statement cache eviction rates.

A bug in LWT handling, when a schema change happens concurrently with an operation, has been fixed.

A few memory leaks, exposed by the out-of-memory query killer, have been fixed.

In developer and debug mores, ScyllaDB will now configure Seastar in shared library mode. This only affects developers of ScyllaDB itself, as release more still uses static libraries.

The --list-tools option now correctly lists all tools invocable via the scylla binary.

Repair-based node operations (RBNO) use repair as an alternative to streaming to improve reliability and correctness. They are no (again) enabled by default.

See you in the next issue of last week in scylladb.git master!
