resin 4.0.30 release notes


We encourage people to report 4.0.30 bugs at

4.0.30 is a release candidate for 4.1.0. Please see changes.xtp for a list of changes.

CLI: dynamic server clarification

Dynamic servers are started on the command line with an "--elastic-server" flag. The "--elastic-server" flag lets you configure dynamic servers on the same machine as your triad servers.

As before, the "--cluster" option tells Resin which cluster to join.

dynamic server start
unix> resinctl start --elastic-server --cluster app

CLI: --elastic-dns for cloud environments

For cloud environments where a dynamic IP address is assigned and bound to a DNS value, Resin can start immediately with the --elastic-dns flag, and continue checking the addresses until one resolves to a local IP address.

Performance and Scalability

See Wiki: Resin 4.0.x vs nginx 1.2 performance for a comparison of Resin's performance vs nginx, a fast C-based HTTP server.

In that benchmark, Resin serves 100,000 requests per second.
