What's New At Releem | May 2022

We are halfway through 2022 and are excited to see what the next 6 months have in store for Releem and our customers. We have many improvements planned for Releem Customer Portal, Agent, and Cloud Platform and can’t wait to get them rolled out. But let’s take a look at what we’ve added this past month!

Updates to Releem Customer Portal


Server Settings for all MySQL servers

We're eager to announce a Settings button for every MySQL server. This means you can set values for some of the variables, from the web interface. The UI is simple and user-friendly, and we’re sure this will improve access and flexibility for our customers' servers. We want to showcase this new feature, using the innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit variable:

There are 2 recommended options for this variable.
  • The safest option. But a lot more disk write operations.
  • The fastest option. It reduces write-load a lot, but you can lose 1 second of data if there is a power failure or kernel crash.

In most web app situations, it is acceptable to set this variable to 2. But if you are handling critical or sensitive data the value should be 1.

You can now set this value using the web interface.




Updates to Releem Cloud Platform


1. Added new MySQL settings

We are continually adding new MySQL settings to Releem, to provide you with greater flexibility and further customization options for your MySQL server. We’re excited to be adding two new MySQL settings this month:
innodb_log_buffer_size – larger buffer can save I/O depending on server behavior
optimizer_search_depth – maximum depth of search performed by the query optimizer

2. Documentation

We are continually making improvements to Documentation. We've published an article on tuning the
max_heap_table_size and key_buffer_size MySQL variables.



Updates to Releem Agent


Fixed Metrics Collection Issue

We were getting reports that Releem Agent wasn’t automatically collecting server metrics as expected. We take issue reports seriously. We identified there was an issue with the installation process for servers with empty crontab.

This issue is fixed. If you have any problems with Releem Customer Portal, Releem Agent, or Releem Cloud Platform, please let us know immediately so we can find a resolution.
