Bug fixes


The Unravel upgrade process can terminate prematurely when there is a large amount of data already collected in the queue_metrics table. This issue can be resolved using the available workaround.

The following workaround should be performed only by an Unravel admin:

Run /usr/local/unravel/install_bin/ to get to the SQL prompt of the Unravel database. Inside the SQL prompt, execute the following:

SHOW INDEX FROM queue_metrics;
  • If you do not see "KEY `index_queue_metrics_on_time_se` (`time_se`)" in the output, execute the following:

    ALTER TABLE queue_metrics ADD INDEX `index_queue_metrics_on_time_se` (`time_se`);
  • If you do not see "queue_name` varchar(255) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL" in the output, execute the following:

    ALTER TABLE queue_metrics MODIFY `queue_name` varchar(255) NOT NULL collate utf8_bin;
    ALTER TABLE queue_config MODIFY `queue_name` varchar(255) NOT NULL collate utf8_bin;

This can take some time to process based on the amount of data. It is highly recommended to run the commands such that it does not terminate when the SSH connection to Unravel host is disconnected. For example, use screen, tmux, nohup etc. (CUSTOMER-1455)
