Issue fixed in this release:

  • Stability[tablets]: test_replace_node_*_ip_take_write dtests fail with: No mapping for :: in the passed effective replication map #18843. May happened when ScyllaDB attempted to access a node that already left the cluster and therefore had no reverse mapping from IP address to Host ID.
  • Stability[tablets]: topology_coordinator needs to be properly stopped on shutdown #18745
  • Build: abseil is not built with proper -O option #19161
  • Stability[tablets]: coredumps after decommission and after repair #19052
  • Stability: Group 0 state machine queries are using a streaming scheduling group, where it might wait for a long repair (fo example) process to complete #18863
  • Stability: hinted handoff: Draining may not happen while migrating to 6.0.x #18761
  • Stability: Fixed the background work of the Alternator expired-item scanner (TTL) to be recognized as background maintenance work. Previously, it was mistaken as user requests, which could degrade the performance of the user’s workload. #18719
  • Stability: node running out of memory and crash during index building and topology change #17476. The root cause is storage_proxy::_throttled_writes may grow without bound #1834
  • Stability[tablets]: repair is unsafe with concurrent tablet migration or replica set change #17658
