This short report brings to light some interesting commits to
scylla.git master from the last week. Commits in the
bd168d57ff..7521301b7 range are covered.
There were 63 non-merge commits from 15 authors in that period. Some notable commits:
Scylla will now close
the connection when a too-large request arrives; previously
Scylla would read and discard the request. The new behavior
protects against having to read and discard potentially gigabytes
A SELECT statement could result in unbounded concurrency (leading
to an out-of-memory error) in some circumstances; this is now fixed.
Off-strategy compaction, a method by which sstables are reshaped
to fit the compaction strategy, is now enabled
for bootstrap and replace operation using standard streaming.
See you in the next issue of last week in scylla.git master!
