Bug fixes

  • Fix certificate fallback logic Fixed the fallback logic for the certificate bundle such that it only uses the builtin bundle when both the cafile AND capath are None.

  • Fix missing database metric Fixed an issue where certain databases were not recording the Datastore/instance/<db>/<host>/<port> metric and so the database was not showing up in the service map.

Notes

This release of the Python agent fixes an issue with MetricNormalizationRules, fixes a DeprecationWarning in pacakge version detection, and adds support for new commands introduced in Redis v5.

Enhancements

  • Add support for new commands introduced in Redis v5 Adds full instrumentation support for Redis v5.

Bug fixes

  • Fix crash in MetricNormalizationRules Fixed a crash when using client side MetricNormalizationRules to ignore metrics (set through NerdGraph and available under a feature flag). The metrics should now be properly ignored.

  • Fix DeprecationWarning in pacakge version detection for Python 3.10+ Fixed a DeprecationWarning emitted by pacakge version detection used internally for Python 3.10+. When importlib.metadata is available, prefer using it to avoid checking deprecated version attributes on modules. (Thanks @renanivo for the contribution!)
