Electric Cloud is pleased to announce the release of ElectricAccelerator® v6.1

Original Creation Date: 2012-06-09 17:01:54 UTC


This release of ElectricAccelerator contains a number of new features that improve reliability and maintainability of an ElectricAccelerator deployment.


  • Improved data integrity cross-checks to protect against errors introduced by unreliable networks -
    Improved integrity checks ensure that received data is not altered during network transfer.
  • Cluster Manager chargeback reporting - The new Build User Statistics report captures ElectricAccelerator usage statistics for each user/hostname/IP address and shows how many builds were run, their duration, wait time, and workload.
  • Multiple network interface support - You can now configure ElectricAccelerator to use two networks for eMake-to-agent communications, and select which network to use for a particular build. For example, different eMake client machines may connect to the same cluster using different networks. Refer to the Multi-interface Configuration Technical Notes (available from the Electric Cloud FTP site) for information about configuring and using this feature.
  • Additional platform support - ElectricAccelerator now supports the following platforms:
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 and 6.2
    • Ubuntu 11.04
    • Additional tool support - ElectricAccelerator now supports Cygwin 1.7.9 and ClearCase 8.0


Electric Cloud recommends all customers upgrade their Accelerator components: Cluster Manager, cluster nodes (agent machines), and all local emake build machines to version 6.1. See the Release Notes for a summary of all product improvements and known issues.
