System upgrades release notes

System upgrades release notes

System upgrades feature enhancements and updates in the Kingston release.

Activation information

Platform feature – active by default.

Changed in this release

  • Shorter upgrade durations : The performance of the upgrade engine is enhanced, resulting in significantly shorter duration times for family-to-family upgrades. A family-to-family upgrade occurs when an instance moves from its current release version to another version in a different family (for example, upgrading from Jakarta Patch 6 to Kingston). The upgrade process is optimized for both patching and family-to-family upgrades starting in Kingston and later releases.
    Note: The performance improvement can be significant enough to cause concern that your upgrade may not have run properly. As always, test your upgrades, but do not assume that the upgrade was unsuccessful based just on the time it took to execute.
