rsyslog

The rocket-fast system for log processing

ChangeLog for 4.1.3 (devel)

Version 4.1.3 [DEVEL] (rgerhards), 2008-12-17

  • added $InputTCPServerAddtlFrameDelimiter config directive, which
    enables to specify an additional, non-standard message delimiter
    for processing plain tcp syslog. This is primarily a fix for the invalid
    framing used in Juniper’s NetScreen products. Credit to forum user
    Arv for suggesting this solution.

  • added $InputTCPServerInputName property, which enables a name to be
    specified that will be available during message processing in the
    inputname property. This is considered useful for logic that treats
    messages differently depending on which input received them.

  • added $PreserveFQDN config file directive
    Enables to use FQDNs in sender names where the legacy default
    would have stripped the domain part.
    Thanks to BlinkMind, Inc. http://www.blinkmind.com for sponsoring this
    development.

  • bugfix: imudp went into an endless loop under some circumstances
    (but could also leave it under some other circumstances…)
    Thanks to David Lang and speedfox for reporting this issue.
