Tenyks update (0.10.0). Connection issues.

Sun Mar 5 11:45:00 2017

I have patched a few connection issues in Tenyks. Below is a list of things included in the new version (from the change log):

  • Added backoff to failed connections when they try to reconnect. This replaces the retries setting that will stop retrying when the max is reached.
  • Kind of fixed a bug in the connection watchdog that would try to send a PING on a nil channel when a connection was disconnected.
  • Fixed logging. It was terrible. It’s still not great, but it’s much better.

In addition to fixing the connection issues, I decided to rip out the old logging system as well and replace it with something more organized so easily spot things that could have lead to a failure.

There’s a new docker image up with the fixes at kyleterry/tenyks:0.10.0. You can pull this down and wrap the image in your own docker file to copy your config in. Consul, etcd, and redis support are coming soon so you can pull config from an environment var.

docker pull kyleterry/tenyks:latest
