Launch Stage and Availability of Features¶
All the features are classified by the launch stage, availability, and the default state as:
- Launch stage: (General Availability or Beta)
- Availability: (Self-serve or via Support)
- Default state: (Enabled or Disabled)
Unless stated otherwise, features are generally available, available as self-service and enabled by default.
This table describes the two different launch stages of a feature.
|Beta||It implies that the features are appropriate for limited production use. There is no SLA adherence for a beta feature.|
|General Availability (GA)||It implies that the features can run production workloads with the SLA adherence.|
This table describes the two types of the feature availability.
|Self-serve||It implies that the feature has a user-configurable property.|
|Via Support||It implies that the feature can be enabled by the Support. The feature may have a configurable property to disable it but only the Support can enable it for the first time.|
This table describes the two types of a feature’s default state.
|Enabled||It implies that Qubole enables this feature by default.|
|Disabled||It implies that the user must enable the feature using the configurable properties.|
Cluster Restart Operation¶
Certain configurations that you change at the cluster level would require a cluster restart for the new configuration to be effective.
