Updated Linux Agent

Updated Rapid Recovery Agent for Linux

This maintenance release includes the new Rapid Recovery Agentrelease 6.2.1 for Linux.

This version of the Agent includes a redesign of the block tree. The resulting product includes a significant reduction in the consumption of RAM in the kernel module (rapidrecovery-vss).

Improved support for the B Tree File System (BTRFS) in Agent 6.2.1 lets Rapid Recovery Core expand the kernels it can protect to include 3.7 and later. In release 6.1.3, BTRFS was supported for kernels 4.2 and newer. This lets Core protect SUSE 12 SP1 and 2. For additional Linux OS supported in this release, see Additional Linux Agent operating systems supported.
