Stream Processor

[NEW] MQTT QoS 0 Reader has been added.

Known Issues

  • If you request too much data in a single getData(), the request will fail. To overcome this issue you should request less data per getData() call. The error message returned will look like the example below
   {"header":{"http":"json","corr":"6dd8f0c5-1895-49c9-a87a-636a834af370","logCorr":"6dd8f0c5-1895-49c9-a87a-636a834af370","client":":","api":".kxi.getData","protocol":"gw","numRP":1,"ogRcID":"","to":"2022-04-07T11:41:35.717000000","retryCount":0,"rc":42,"ac":10,"ai":"Agg died"},"payload":[]}
  • cannot be run in a pipeline to query an Insights database. The following example code can be used as a workaround to query data (ex. reference data to be used within a pipeline).
if[0 <> hdr`ac;
    .sp.log.error ("Query failed host=%s, api=%s, code=%n, error=%s";hdr`gw; hdr`api; hdr`ac; hdr`ai)];
publish data
.qsp.onStart {
    h:hopen hsym `$.spenv.getReleaseName[],"-sg-gateway:5050";
    res: neg[h] (`.kxi.getData; (enlist `table)!(enlist `instruments); `onResponse; ()!());
}[`publish] .qsp.write.toConsole[]
  • If metrics reporting is enabled within a microservice, along with the handler for, services calling through the with 0(f;x) will throw a type error due to a failure in the handler to return correctly. The workaround if metrics reporting is enabled is to disable the event handler in the metrics configuration for all microservices.

    "enabled": "true",

Upgrade considerations

  • If using a kdb+ tick tickerplant, the schema for database signals has changed to the following, which must be updated in the tick sym.q
(`$"_prtnEnd") set ([] time:"n"$(); sym:`$(); signal:`$(); endTS:"p"$(); opts:());
(`$"_reload") set ([] time:"n"$(); sym:`$(); mount:`$(); params:(); asm:`$())
