Version 5.5.0 [DEVEL] (rgerhards), 2009-11-18
- moved DNS resolution code out of imudp and into the backend processing
Most importantly, DNS resolution now never happens if the resolved name is not required. Note that this applies to imudp – for the other inputs, DNS resolution almost comes for free, so we do not do it there. However, the new method has been implemented in a generic way and as such may also be used by other modules in the future.
- added option to use unlimited-size select() calls
Thanks to varmjofekoj for the patch
This is not done in imudp, as it natively supports epoll().
