  • Fix Meeting Point shutdown when restarting server application.
  • Fixed race conditions related to security key access from multiple applications.
  • Fixed some minor issues with logging configuration check.

2.5.8 (2017-01-23)

Enhancements

  • 1x00 series: Improved TCP performance on systems using NICs with multiple RX and TX queues.

Fixes

Enhancement

  • TCP loss recovery improvements in case you have very low latency.

Server

  • Fixed startup issues in combination with Meeting Point and USB dongle.
  • 2x00 series and 4100 series: Fixed incorrect frame size distribution statistics.
  • 4100 series: Fixed growing size modifier when the number of frames on a stream has specific values.
  • Fixed returning incomplete frame size distribution (was limited to 1455B packets instead of 1514B).
  • Frame size modifier results: No longer throwing exception when no packets received
    and obtaining number of packets below minimum or number of packets above maximum.
  • Growing size modifier: Fixed floating point exception when step was bigger than maximum - minimum.
  • Fix possible crash when an exception occurred while creating a ByteBlowerPort.

2.5.4 (2016-11-17)

Fixes

Server
