The HiveMQ team is proud to announce the release of HiveMQ Enterprise MQTT Platform 4.24. This release kicks off the new year with big stability and performance improvements for high-load HiveMQ broker deployments and several useful observability and operability enhancements.


  • Improved stability of the HiveMQ broker cluster under high load while undergoing topology changes such as rolling upgrades and adding or removing nodes.
  • Significant improvements to the efficiency of HiveMQ broker deployment on many-core instances including increased throughput and reduced CPU usage (in some scenarios, up to 5 times fewer nodes to maintain the same throughput).
  • Reduced latency of PUBLISH packets passing through the broker by using more CPU.

More Noteworthy Features and Improvements

HiveMQ Enterprise MQTT Broker

  • Improved non-blocking cluster transport for better cluster stability.
  • Adjusted cluster transport to improve scalability on machines with more than 16 CPU cores.
  • Increased stability of the cluster transport by improving the threading model.
  • Fixed an issue that could allow empty topics in MQTT 3 PUBLISH messages and MQTT 5 PUBLISH response messages.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the connect-succeeded client event history entry to include a session-present flag when no previous session exists.
  • Adjusted how JavaFileStore not found notifications are handled to avoid unnecessary feedback on the WARN log level.
  • Improved error handling in the internal executor service to facilitate debugging.

HiveMQ Data Hub

  • Improved script deletion handling to prevent errors in active policy executions that reference the script.
  • Improved script error statements and log-level configuration options to simplify debugging.

HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for MongoDB

  • Added the ability to map all MQTT 5 user properties of a PUBLISH message as a JSON string array in the data the extension exports to MongoDB.
  • Added the ability to map each MQTT 5 user property of a PUBLISH message as an individual string in the data the extension exports to MongoDB.

HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for PostgreSQL

  • Added the ability to map all MQTT 5 user properties of a PUBLISH message to a single PostgreSQL column as a JSON string array.
  • Added the ability to map each individual MQTT 5 user property of a PUBLISH message to a separate PostgreSQL column as a string.
