You will receive announcements about new versions of Sandfly from the mailing list if you subscribed to it. Additionally, you can check our website for announcements about new versions.
TIP: Keep Your System Updated! We are constantly adding in new sandfly investigative capabilities and features. You will want to make sure you keep your system updated.
To update Sandfly, fully read and complete the following steps.
Step 1: Pause Scheduled Tasks
Step 2: Make Sure All Tasks Have Completed
In the Sandfly UI, check the Task Queue by clicking on its button in the top bar or via the menu at Scanning > Task Queue and make sure the task queue is at 0 (zero), as indicated by the number in the circle. It is important to not stop nodes in the middle of scans because it can leave orphaned files on the remote hosts. If the nodes are allowed to finish then everything cleans up correctly.

Step 3: Download The Update
Option 1: Pull Latest Setup Scripts with Git
If you pulled the original setup from github, perform the following sequence. If you used the tarball you should proceed to step 3, option 2 instead.
Go to the sandlfy-setup directory on your server and nodes. Then do a pull for the latest setup scripts with the commands below:
Then do a git pull to pull over any changes:
git pull origin
Option 2: Pull Latest Setup Tarball
If you did not initially install the setup scripts with git, you will have to pull the latest version from this URL and then untar it over the existing sandfly-setup directory:
Step 4: Delete Docker Images
Once all tasks have been cleared out, we can run our scripts to stop and delete all Docker containers on the server and node instances.
Run the following command on the server and all nodes.
cd ~/sandfly-setup/setup ./clean_docker.sh be5e5caf816b db7a5567a8f1 b5ba80831a5d be5e5caf816b db7a5567a8f1 b5ba80831a5d Untagged: sandfly/sandfly-rabbit:latest Untagged: sandfly/sandfly-server-mgmt:latest Untagged: sandfly/sandfly-server:latest ...
cd ~/sandfly-setup/setup ./clean_docker.sh a8c3b80228c4 9ecc25cdaae7 0106c87dbfd3 fb25ff348c30 a8c3b80228c4 9ecc25cdaae7 0106c87dbfd3 fb25ff348c30 Untagged: sandfly/sandfly-node:latest ...
You will see a large list of container hashes go by. Then you will be back at the command prompt. That means the script completed and the Docker containers have been removed.
Step 5: Run Start Scripts Again On Server and Nodes
On the server, and separately on all nodes, simply run the applicable start script. They will pull over the latest version of Sandfly and run it.
cd ~/sandfly-setup/start_scripts/ ./start_sandfly.sh *** Starting Postgres. ... *** Starting RabbitMQ server. ... Waiting for RabbitMQ to configure and start. This will take about 45 seconds. ...... *** Starting Sandfly Server. ... <server is started>
cd ~/sandfly-setup/start_scripts/ ./start_node.sh Unable to find image 'sandfly/sandfly-node:latest' locally latest: Pulling from sandfly/sandfly-node ...
On the Node(s) hosts you can run the start script multiple times to start multiple containers depending on your RAM and CPU capacity.
Step 6: Verification
Run the docker ps command on the server and node(s) to make sure everything is running.

At this point you should now be able to log back into the UI. If you would like to confirm the version number, navigate to Settings > Settings Summary within the UI. The version number will be displayed in the "About Sandfly" section.
Step 7: Resume Your Schedules
Finally, resume your formerly enabled schedules and Sandfly will take up where it left off.
