“Index out of range” error in logs

Description

Redis cluster users receive the aforementioned error message in their logs. The log stack may resemble the following:

2016/06/22 09:58:41 http: panic serving 10.0.0.1:37196: runtime error: index out of range
2016/06/22 09:58:41 http: panic serving 10.0.0.1:37898: runtime error: index out of range
2016/06/22 09:58:41 http: panic serving 10.0.0.1:38013: runtime error: index out of range
2016/06/22 09:58:42 http: panic serving 10.0.0.1:39753: runtime error: index out of range
2016/06/22 10:01:07 http: panic serving 10.0.0.1:34657: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference
2016/06/22 10:01:07 http: panic serving 10.0.0.1:36801: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference

Cause

This is due to a bug that prevents the driver from picking up a random redis handle in single-instance connections such as pub/sub. The issue affects later patch releases of Tyk 2.2 and the first release of Tyk 2.3.

Solution

Users are advised to upgrade to the latest versions of any Tyk packages (Tyk Gateway v2.3.0.33+, Dashboard v1.3.0.14+ and Pump 0.4.0.12+) at their earliest convenience as a patch was released to resolve this issue. Packages are available to download from Packagecloud.io and further details on how to upgrade can be found in our docs.
