  • Add ability to apply a policy yaml document so that GitOps workflows can be used to create and
    modify policies.

  • Add ability to run a live query that returns 1,000+ results in the Fleet UI by adding
    client-side pagination to the results table.

  • Improve the accuracy of query platform compatibility detection by adding recognition for queries
    with the WITH expression.

  • Add ability to open a page in the Fleet UI in a new tab by "right-clicking" an item in the navigation.

  • Improve the live query API route (GET /api/v1/queries/run) so that it successfully return results for Fleet
    instances using a load balancer by reducing the wait period to 25 seconds.

  • Improve performance of the Fleet UI by updating loading states and reducing the number of requests
    made to the Fleet API.

  • Improve performance of the MySQL database by updating the queries used to populate host vitals and
    caching the results.

  • Add read_timeout Redis configuration
    to customize the
    maximum amount of time Fleet should wait to receive a response from a Redis server.

  • Add write_timeout Redis configuration
    to customize the
    maximum amount of time Fleet should wait to send a command to a Redis server.

  • Fix a bug in which browser extensions (Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari) were not included in
    software inventory.

  • Improve the security of the Organization settings page by preventing the browser from requesting
    to save SMTP credentials.

  • Fix a bug in which an existing pack's targets were not cleaned up after deleting hosts, labels, and teams.

  • Fix a bug in which non-existent queries and policies would not return a 404 not found response.


  • Our testing demonstrated an increase in max devices served in our load test infrastructure to 70,000 from 60,000 in v4.8.0.

Load Test Infrastructure

  • Fleet server

    • AWS Fargate
    • 2 tasks with 1024 CPU units and 2048 MiB of RAM.
  • MySQL

    • Amazon RDS
    • db.r5.2xlarge
  • Redis

    • Amazon ElastiCache
    • cache.m5.large with 2 replicas (no cluster mode)

What was changed to accomplish these improvements?

  • Optimized the updating and fetching of host data to only send and receive the bare minimum data

  • Reduced the number of times host information is updated by caching more data.

  • Updated cleanup jobs and deletion logic.

Future improvements

  • At maximum DB utilization, we found that some hosts fail to respond to live queries. Future releases of Fleet will improve upon this.
