In Vertica 8.1.1-6 there are some catalog-related issues that can affect performance. We recommend you update to 8.1.1-9 or later as soon as possible.
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 184.108.40.206 (like 220.127.116.11) do you need to upgrade?
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!
