Upcoming END OF LIFE announcement for WranglerView
Beginning with the 6.8 release, WranglerView will be entering a "sunset"
phase. It will continue to ship until Qube v7.0.
WranglerView will not have any major new features or functionality added to
this or future versions, and any changes will be limited to bug fixes or
minor feature additions necessary to facilitate customer needs
until they can make the transition over to the new Qube UI.
From Qube 7.0 onwards, all major functionality encompassed in WranglerView is
anticipated to have been ported over to the framework that the current
ArtistView is built on. With some additional features added along the way,
this will be known as the new Qube UI.
There may be new minor features added to the administration and
wrangler-centric functionality of WranglerView as needed until such
time as the new Qube UI achieves parity with current
Highlighted 7.0 Changes
No direct database access in Qube 7.0
Due to the upcoming "Secure View" features in Qube, direct database access
is no longer supported. Since database access is unavailable from any host
except the supervisor, the following has been removed from WranglerView:
Administration->Database Maintenance menus have been removed. Database
maintenance functionality will initially be provided via cmdline
utilities, we are investigating integrating this into a supervisor-only
The "memory usage" stats are no longer available. This was a statistic
that was only available on linux workers and necessitated the
installation of an additional data collector on all workers.
The "Performance Charts" are no longer available. These are being
moved to the online system metrics system available on our online
portal, and will be available in an upcoming version of Qube 7.
The "Banned Hosts" management tab is now unavailable; this was
populated by a SQL query, conversion to an API query is in progress,
and when this is complete this functionality will be restored.
