    This issues only 8.1.1-6 ? I have 8.1.1-8 in prod, Do I need to update?

    @sergey_h - The fix is in Vertica 8.1.1-9. So if using Vertica 8.1.1-8, you can potentially encounter this issue where you'll see a sudden drop in performance after the database is UP for few days.

    The actual fix is labeled as "VER-58838 / Catalog Engine / The Vertica garbage collector algorithm has been modified to prevent query slowdown."


  • Jim - what version is the original issue in? If you're running a version prior to (like do you need to upgrade?

    thank you!

    The "issue" was introduced in 8.1.1-6. So 8.1.1-2 is okay. But when upgrading, make sure to upgrade to at least 8.1.1-9, where the "issue" was rectified.

  • thanks for the clarification!
