New Features and Enhancements

The following new features and enhancements were introduced this software release:
Product Internal Number Case Number Description
All VOV-10550   Added inline documentation for the default vovcleanup config file, cleanup.config.tcl.
All VOV-6577   A new configuration parameter (liverecorder.logdir) has been added to allow the Live Recorder recording file directory to be specified. This can be used with both the vovservermgr configure and vovslavemgr configure utilities.

The default location for the server remains $SWD/../. The default location for the slave remains /tmp.

All VOV-9639, VOV-9640   Improved the functional relationship between the refresh operation and the reporting operations of the vovprocessmgr utility, improved the help text for all options that needed clarification, added warnings about timing and accuracy, and added host filter support to the refresh operation for orphans.
All VOV-9454 23741 Most of the VOV Tcl files from the installation package now contain a proper Altair copyright statement.

Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved in this software release:
Product Internal Number Case Number Description
All   24362 Fixed a bug when vovserver incorrectly reports about license expiration for perpetual license.
All   23689 Added a new time value trace parameter: preemption.rule.cooldown. Preemption rules that are disabled due to exceeding the max preemption processing time (preemption.max.time.rule) will observe a cooldown period equal to the value specified by preemption.rule.cooldown before being automatically re-enabled. The minimum value is 0 which indicates that an alert should be generated but the rule will not be disabled. The default and max value is 1y = off (rules will not be automatically re-enabled).
All VOV-10317   Fixed an error that corrupted non-default values for the allowUidForSecurityFile parameter, which in turn could prevent the vovserver from honoring settings in the security file.
All VOV-10665   Fixed an issue in the deprecated vtk_resourcemap_reserve Tcl command that caused an error when attempting to cancel existing reservations by updating the duration to 0 seconds.
All VOV-10239   Simplified switches to avoid user confusion.
All VOV-10726   Fixed an issue that caused the "show all rows" link to not appear in some web UI tables that were being limited. The behavior of this link has also changed slightly, in that when showing all rows, instead of passing the total number of rows the table is cognizant of back into the table as the new limit, a limit of 0 is passed. This triggers the table functionality to show all rows available. To prevent confusion, an empty string is displayed as the current limit value instead of 0. Before this change, the total number of rows was only current at the time the table was build, so the limit passed was often stale and still did not show all rows.
Allocator VOV-9066 23158 The "show all rows" links in LA resource report tables has been restored.
Allocator VOV-10841 24713, 24756 Fixed issue where Allocator would double count OOQ tokens. This would result in sites with OOQ jobs getting more than their fair share of tokens. This could also result in some tokens not being allocated to sites.
