Make the QDS more resilient when system stalls out

QlikView April 2020 includes the following improvements to make the QDS more resilient if the system stalls out:

  • If the load balancer is locked, the QMC now displays "Cluster is down" in the task menu.
  • QlikView now tries to reopen a file for 10 seconds instead of for one minute, which leads to quicker response in logs about locked files.
  • If QlikView fails to grab Loadbalancer.xml on disk it will revert to the in-memory cached load balancer if such exists.
  • Emails about Cluster is Down can be sent by setting up parameter "ServiceFailureAlertEmailAddresses" in a QMS config file.

Support for QlikView QDS Alert email for AD Security Groups

With QlikView April 2020 you can also send QDS alerts to Security Groups.
