Issues that are fixed in this update
Fixed a memory leak that occurs in specific scenarios. When a dependent service of AppFabric is unresponsive, this results in undisposed objects that accumulate over time. This issue is more noticeable in scenarios where the dependent services have regularly scheduled downtimes that aren't synchronized with the AppFabric server’s downtime.
Fixed an intermittent crash issue. The scenario requires that the AppFabric server has several dependent services and many persisted workflows. The crash is rare but typically occurs during startup.
Fixed a crash in the AppFabric Event Collection Service when ETW events that are associated with Workflow Versioning are present. If the Workflow instances that are monitored in the AppFabric Dashboard use Workflow Versioning, ETW events that the Event Collection Service doesn’t recognize may be generated. This causes the Event Collection Service to crash.
Resolution: After you apply this hotfix, the AppFabric Event Collection Service will recognize the new ETW events and won't crash.
