This is a bugfix release for the legacy Java SE5 version of the agent. Unless you are a Java SE5 user, use the latest version of the New Relic Java agent.
- Fixed an issue that in rare cases could cause the agent to cease reporting data until JVM restart.
X-ray sessions sometimes return no transaction traces. Many x-ray session runs can cause a memory leak.
- Higher overhead with Play 2 than later releases.
- Does not work properly with Play 2.2
akka.actor.ActorKilledExceptionas an error.
- Play transaction does not complete until timeout expires
- When using Play,
ignoreTransactioncall does not take effect
In some cases running Weblogic, the Java agent fails certificate validation when connecting to New Relic. This may require a workaround.
This release contains some inconsistencies in the instrumentation of Hibernate across versions.
This release requires a workaround to use SSL with WebSphere.
Potential memory leak when app continually creates ClassLoaders.
Rare memory leak if agent does not report to New Relic for an extended period.
When running IBM JVM without WebSphere, you must set the
sync_startupflag set to true in the common section of
newrelic.yml: sync_startup: true.
If you require a workaround for one of these issues, please open a ticket at support.newrelic.com.
