Bug fixes

  • [STOR-1021] - Request queue length monitoring in the FE
  • [STOR-1025] - Configurable size limit for the request queue


  • [STOR-1020] - Remove functions and code related to old and deprecated variables

Installation and configuration

Update package:

yum update storm-frontend-server

and run YAIM (mandatory).

Important: StoRM Frontend 1.8.12 introduces changes in the main configuration file:


The useless parameters:

# Proxy information
proxy.dir = ...
proxy.user = ...

have been deprecated and no more supported. Frontend won’t start if these variables are not deleted. Latest YAIM version automatically fix it.

If your configuration file is for some reason managed by puppet or other tools, update your server configuration.

You can find information about upgrade, clean installation and configuration of StoRM services in the System Administration Guide.
