    What versions of #postgres have table limitations, if any? Running into issues with #pg_dump. #postgresql

    seems like issues with 9.1 and older. Big fixes in 9.2.

    Regarding #Mongodb 3.6, anything to resolve this other than upgrading?

    “exception: shard version not ok: version mismatch detected for”

    #Mongo
    there's a fix in 3.6.18 that might fix this.

    Any reason why in #Jenkins build environment settings wouldn't stick, but all other settings stick? I am guessing an incompatible plugin.

    Are you looking for this?

    EVAnaRkISTO at 2021-03-12T22:15:09Z

    no, that's the standard source, not the dev source. We need fixes going on 9.0.45. Thanks though!

    can #apachetomcat be used as a proxy server? or #jetty or whatever Tomcat actually uses. I'm in in a situation where I can't use something that actually makes sense.

    HTTP2 WINDOW_UPDATE and REFUSED_STREAM...are they related (other than just being HTTP2)? Aside from the fact that HTTP2 is supposed to be faster, I know very little about it. Does anybody have a good resource on it? There's nothing on pluralsight.
  • 2021-03-02T15:56:40Z via datamost.com Web To: Public CC: Followers

    Is there a way to reset HTTP2 Streams in #ApacheTomcat without reloading all of #Tomcat? I'm dealing with a single stuck stream.

    Are the changes listed as 9.0.42 in 9.0.43? That's my assumption, but it isn't clear. #ApacheTomcat #tomcat

    https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-9.0-doc/changelog.html
    Ok, this is appears to be the answer:

    "Fixed in:
    - 10.0.x for 10.0.1 onwards
    - 9.0.x for 9.0.42 onwards
    - 8.5.x for 8.5.62 onwards"

    Is there any reason to think embedded #Tomcat would handle #HTTP2 any differently than regular Tomcat. I don't think there is, but I also don't know anything about the application, which makes me suspicious.

    If you have something that is purely a frontend display, can you see that in any dev tools? I feel like the answer has got to be yes, but...I couldn't figure it out.
