Enhancement Advisory Red Hat Enterprise MRG Realtime 2.5 enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2016:0600-4
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2016-04-06
Last updated on: 2017-03-10
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise MRG v2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (version 6)


Updated Red Hat Enterprise MRG Realtime packages that add one enhancement are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5.

MRG Realtime provides the highest levels of predictability for consistent
low-latency response times to meet the needs of time-sensitive workloads. MRG
Realtime provides new levels of determinism by optimizing lengthy kernel code
paths to ensure that they do not become bottlenecks. This allows for better
prioritization of applications, resulting in consistent, predictable response
times for high-priority applications.

This update adds the following enhancement:

* Red Hat Enterprise MRG Realtime stores release information in a database that
is used to create the contents of the /etc/mrg-rt-release file upon boot. The
rt-setup package, which manages this database, has been updated with new
information about Red Hat Enterprise MRG Realtime releases. (BZ#1315883)

Users of the real-time capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5 that is
layered on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which add this enhancement.


Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
