AMPS 5.2 is now available

AMPS 5.2 is now available.

This release of AMPS includes new features designed to help manage extremely complex, high-volume data flows that require data transformation in the AMPS server — while maintaining the performance and ease of use that AMPS is known for. The release also includes a set of features designed to make AMPS easier to configure and administer, and a wide variety of other usability and performance improvements.

The new functionality in AMPS 5.2 includes:

  • Inline Message Enrichment. AMPS can now modify and enrich messages as they are published, without requiring that a separate view be configured. When a message is enriched, AMPS perists the enriched version of the message into the transaction log and topic SOW file.
  • Aggregated Subscriptions. A subscriber can now request that aggregation and analytics occur for an individual subscription, without requiring that a view be defined in the AMPS configuration file.
  • Conflated Subscriptions. A subscriber can now request that conflation occur for an individual subscription, without requiring that a conflated topic be defined in the AMPS configuration file.
  • Monitoring Interface. AMPS includes an enhanced monitoring interface, the Galvanometer, that displays information about a set of instances in an easy-to-understand graphical format.
  • SSL Support. The AMPS server now fully supports SSL/TLS connections.
  • Order Chaining. AMPS now includes the ability to update SOW records with chained, or hierarchical, SOW keys. This is most commonly used with FIX order chaining, but can also be used any time a hierarchical document structure should update a single record in the SOW.
  • Expanded Set of Functions. This release of AMPS includes more functions for working with data. Expanded functions include string construction functions such as CONCAT(), numeric functions such as ROUND(), and aggregation functions such as STDDEV_POP() and STDDEV_SAMP().
  • Configuration File Simplification. AMPS now supports the ability to easily compose configuration files from a library of common definitions with the new Include configuration file directive.
  • File System Threshold Actions. The AMPS action set now includes the ability to conditionally run actions based on the capacity of the file system, to provide finer-grained control for instances with limited filesystem capacity.
  • Local Queues. AMPS 5.2 adds the ability to explicitly declare that a queue is maintained only on the local instance, even in cases where the data in the underlying topics for the queue is replicated.
  • Performance Improvements. AMPS 5.2 includes many other improvements that both increase performance and make AMPS easier than ever to configure and use.
