Breaking changes

  • All configuration is now stored under /opt/edgeware/acd, see [ESB3024-425]. Any configuration that is to be kept needs to be manually migrated.
    Typically /opt/edgeware/etc/confd/store/store.json needs to be copied to /opt/edgeware/acd/confd/store/store.json, /opt/edgeware/var/lib/acd-router/cached-acd-router-config.json needs to be copied to /opt/edgeware/acd/router/cache/config.json and /opt/edgeware/var/lib/acd-router/cached-router-rest-api-key.json needs to be copied to /opt/edgeware/acd/router/cache/rest-api-key.json. Custom Lua functions need to be migrated from /opt/edgeware/acd/var/lib/custom_lua to /opt/edgeware/acd/router/lib/custom_lua. The Prometheus and Grafana configurations also need to be copied if they have been modified.

    The following changes were made to the confcli configuration [ESB3024-455].
  • The rule fields inside the routing rule items were renamed to condition to avoid confusion with the rules list. This applies to the blocks allow, deny, split and weighted.
  • The popularityThreshold in the contentPopularity routing rule was renamed to contentPopularityCutoff.

9 - Release acd-router-1.0.0

First production

Build date

2022-11-22

Release status

Type: First production release

The setting “allowed_clients” should not be used since the functionality does not work as expected.

Change log

  • Flexible routing rule engine with support for Lua plugins. Support many use cases, including CDN Offload and CDN Selection.
  • Advanced client classification mechanisms for routing based on group memberships (device type, content type, etc).
  • Geobased routing including dedicated high-performing API for subnet matching, associating an incoming request with a region.
  • Integration API to feed the service with arbitrary variables to use for routing decisions. Can be used to get streaming bitrate in public CDNs, status from network probes, etc.
  • Flexible request/response translation manipulation on the client facing interface. Can be used for URL manipulation, encoding/decoding tokens or adapting the interface to e.g. the PowerDNS backend protocol.
  • Metrics API that can be monitored with standard monitoring software. Out-of-the-box integration with Prometheus and Grafana.
  • Robust deployment with each service instance running independently, and allowing the service to stay in operational state even when backends become temporarily unavailable.
  • RHEL 7/8 support.
