    Upgrade Notes

    important

    🚧 BindPlane v1.46.0 contains breaking changes.

    As of 1.46.0, Prometheus is required to store agent throughput measurements. Throughput measurement support has been removed from Bolt Store and PostgreSQL.

    Single-instance users do not need to take action. BindPlane will spawn a Prometheus sub-process automatically.

    High-availability users will need to make sure Prometheus is configured in their environment. Documentation for configuring Prometheus in a BindPlane HA architecture can be found here.

    Helm users should upgrade to chart version 1.2.0. Consult the chart release notes before upgrading. Once upgraded to Chart version 1.2.0, it is safe to upgrade to Chart version 1.2.1, which contains BindPlane v1.46.0.

    Migration Notes

    This release includes a change that will break future downgrade compatibility for users with a single account boltstore installation of BindPlane. Before upgrading, those users should create a backup of their storage file, which can be used in the event of a downgrade.*

    To downgrade, those users should follow these steps:

    1. Stop the BindPlane service
    2. Replace the storage file with the backed-up version
    3. Restart the BindPlane service

    Changes made after upgrading will not be persisted when performing this downgrade.


    * If, instead, BindPlane is configured with either multi-account or postgres, this release is backward compatible and no action is needed to downgrade safely. BindPlane is multi-account if accounts.enable is true in its configuration:

    yaml
    1accounts:
    2  enable: true

    Bug Fixes and Improvements

    • Resolved an issue where Prometheus backed agent measurements were inconsistent in some cases

    Upgrade Procedure

    Prometheus

    Agent measurement values will be inconsistent in some situations. Upgrading to v1.41.0 solves this issue.

    If you are using BindPlane's built in Prometheus service, no action is required. If you are unsure, generally this means your BindPlane server is managing it's own Prometheus service behind the scenes. You can skip this procedure.

    If you are using a self managed Prometheus instance for your measurements backend, you must update your Prometheus recording rule at /etc/prometheus/rules.yml.

    yaml
    1groups:
    2- name: configuration-rollups
    3  interval: 1m
    4  rules:
    5  - record: bindplane_agent_measurements:rollup:rate:1m
    6    expr: sum without (agent) (rate(bindplane_agent_measurements{}[1m9s999ms] offset 10s))

    Once updated, restart the service.

    bash
    1sudo systemctl restart prometheus
