We currently have logsearch 208.0.0 deployed, which contains:
Looking through all logsearch_boshrelease, it appears version 209.1.0 would be compatible with the 5.5.2 release as it appears to be based on:
Update Elastic stack to v5.6.13
Which I checked by clicking on the commit hash and looking the comment here.
Now, looking through the releases, they clearly indicate when one release is backwards compatible with previous releases.
209 and 209.1 do not indicate they are backwards compatible.
I am only making this assuming since they are still running the version 5 code line while 210 is running the version 7 code line.
We have been having a lot of issues lately with the load on our Kibana server and I am hoping an update in the release might address some of it.
- failed to obtain in-memory shard lock
- failed to execute pipeline for a bulk request
- failed to process cluster event (create-index-template [filebeat-6.1.2], cause [api]) within 30s
The blog post 5.6.0 released indicates an upgrade to path to 6.0.0, does not really mention incompatibilities with 5.5.x.
