Noteworthy Bug Fixes with References to Upstream (Open Source) Issues:

      • nodetool status shows stalled status of previous Scylla run. For example, when Scylla exits with an out of disk space error, after a restart, nodetool status may show old and out of date statuses of other nodes in the cluster. #1629
      • Unbound LSA memory allocation size may lead to huge memory segment allocation and cause latency issues. #2335
      • SSTables are not destroyed if streaming flushes fail – keeping them on disk in a temporary state taking redundant space. #3062
      • In some rare cases, LSA zone reclaimer leaks memory in certain conditions, which may result in bad_allocs at a later phase. #3129
      • Node fails to restart and crash with error “Assertion `!_in_batch’ failed”. #3018
      • Prometheus metrics pulling can cause memory pressure and latency issues. Seastar commit.
