Aerospike Tools Release 5.1.0 (February 19, 2021)

Aerospike Tools version 5.1.0 was released on February 19, 2021.

  • The ASADM output format has been revised as of Aerospike Tools version 5.0.1 and could break user’s scripts.
  • Aerospike Tools currently supports Python3.5 to Python3.8.
  • The “python3” binary path must now resolve. For example: /usr/bin/env python3. The “python” binary path is no longer used.
  • The Aerospike CDT Validation Tool addresses the following types of CDT issues, which require certain Aerospike Server versions to detect or correct.
    • Order: The CDT bin has elements out of order. Performing operations on Ordered Lists under Aerospike to may have corrupted records. Fixing this problem requires Aerospike Server version 4.5.3 or newer. If also using XDR, before upgrading to Aerospike 4.6.0 or newer, you must run asvalidation .
    • Padding: The bin has garbage bytes after the valid list or map. This issue is resolved in Aerospike Server version 4.6.0 or newer. For Aerospike Server version 4.5.3 or earlier this issue can be fixed by running the asvalidation tool.
