Changelog for 7.2.4 (v7-stable)

Version 7.2.4 [v7-stable] 2012-12-07

  • enhance: permit RFC3339 timestamp in local log socket messages Thanks to Sebastien Ponce for the patch.
  • imklog: added ParseKernelTimestamp parameter (import from 5.10.2) Thanks to Marius cell phone spy software Tomaschewski for the patch.
  • fix missing functionality: ruleset(){} could not specify ruleset queue The "queue.xxx" parameter set was not supported, and legacy ruleset config statements did not work (by intention). The fix spy on a cheating spouse mobile phone introduces the "queue.xxx" parameter set. It has some regression potential, but only for the new functionality. Note that using that interface it is possible to specify duplicate queue file names, which will cause trouble. This will be solved in v7.3, because there is a too-large regression potential for the v7.2 stable branch.
  • imklog: added KeepKernelTimestamp parameter (import from 5.10.2) Thanks to Marius Tomaschewski for the patch.
  • bugfix: imklog mistakenly took kernel timestamp subseconds as nanoseconds … actually, they are microseconds. So the fractional part of the timestamp was not properly formatted. (import from 5.10.2) Thanks to Marius Tomaschewski phone spy app for the bug report and the patch idea.
  • bugfix: supportoctetcountedframing parameter did not work in imptcp
  • bugfix: modules not (yet) supporting new conf format were not properly registered. This mobile phone spy app free lead to a "module not found" error message instead of the to-be-expected "module does not support new style" error message. That invalid error message could be quite misleading and actually stop people from addressing the real problem (aka "go nuts" ;))
  • bugfix: template "type" parameter is mandatory (but was not)
  • bugfix: some message properties could be garbled due to race condition This happened only on very high volume systems, if the same message was being processed by two different actions. This was a regression caused by the new config research paper chapter two processor, which did no longer properly enable msg locking in multithreaded cases. The bugfix is actually a refactoring of the msg locking code – we no longer do unlocked operations, as the use case for it has mostly gone away. buy an essay It is potentially possible only at very low-end systems, and there the small additional overhead of doing the locking does not really hurt. Instead, the removal of that capability can actually slightly improve performance in common cases, as the code path is smaller and requires slightly less memory writes. That probably outperforms the extra locking overhead (which in the low-end case always happens in user space, without need for kernel support custom essay writing as we can always directly aquire the lock – there is no contention at all).
