Summary of 14.04.03

  • Several fixes and improvements have been combined in this update release to improve overall system SIP message processing performance as well as improving the efficiency of system CPU utilization. To improve SIP message processing performance the following MongoDB related improvements are included:
  • Change to the MongoDB driver so that it can choose a database server across a WAN connection if latency to the far node was less than 15ms.
  • Reduced the number of MongoDB queries required to process each SIP message by reading information once and making that information available to all Proxy plugins.
  • Removed some custom MongoDB C++ changes and introduced a timeout value for database reads/writes. openUC also exposes these timeout values so that administrators can easily tune the system for their own environment.
  • Overall CPU utilization improvements across the platform and providing break out of alarm related logs. This includes media related services (voicemail, conferencing, MoH) and the proxy’s transaction cleanup routine (garbage collector).
  • Added MongoDB C++ driver logging to be able to get better information about MongoDB operations.
  • Improvements in memory utilization with Instant Messaging and devices using TCP SIP messaging.
