Release SRU 49 Features (HMP version

  • In previous versions, when using the fwupdate command to update the firmware of a device, associated plugins are loaded and discovery is run for all devices in the system. This can increase execution time as devices that are not being updated do not require additional plugins to be loaded.

    In this version, if you specify a firmware metadata file in the fwupdate command line, only plugins associated with devices that are described in the metadata file are loaded during discovery.

    This will improve the cycle time for fwupdate list and update actions.

  • When using the fwupdate command with the -x option to specify a metadata file, the devices discovered might change because the "software_type" specified in the metadata file might limit which devices are discovered. This might cause the device ID to change when specifying a metadata file with -x option.
