V43 DB version upgrade impacts - PLEASE REVIEW

  • 1.  V43 DB version upgrade impacts - PLEASE REVIEW

    Posted Fri December 10, 2021 10:10 AM
    Hi Everyone,

    As previously communicated we had to delay V43 to this month and we're happy to say its just been released.

    As part of this release we've upgraded the database version from postgresql 9.6 to 12.8.

    As a consequence of this we require more DB space than would normally be the case as we have a high water mark of having both a 9,6 and 12.8 DB concurrently during the upgrade. Because of this, the upgrade will not proceed unless the filesystem containing the database has sufficient space available. The expected amount required during the upgrade is 1.5 times the existing database size, plus 10GB margin, is available.

    The attached doc explains the logic behind the space requirements and the upgrade procedure itself, while the attached script allows you to run this in advance of any upgrade and it effectively performs the various checks described in the doc.

    We hope these will allow you plan in advance for any potential impacts caused by the one off upgrade scenario

    As usual, we welcome any feedback or questions on this topic.
