RSyslog Windows Agent 4.2 Released

Adiscon is proud to announce the 4.2 release of MonitorWare Agent.

Besides some bugfixes (See Version History for details) a few new features have been added to this minor release. Most important is the ability to use regular expressions as compare operation when filtering properties. Properties can also be converted into IPv4 or IPv6 Addresses now, and the Syslog Priority/Facility can be overwritten in the Syslog Action.

Detailed information can be found in the version history below.

Build-IDs: Service 4.2.0.170, Client 4.2.0.250

Features

  • Syslog Action: Added support to overwrite Syslog Priority/Facility
  • Property Engine: Added two new property replacer options "toipv4address" and "toipv6address" to resolve a property into a valid IPv4 or IPv6 Address.
  • Filter Engine: Implemented a new regular expressions compare operation.
    More details on how to use REGEX can be found in the new documentation.
  • Configuration Reload: Added new options to add a random delay between configuration checks. The delay is limited to 60 seconds as it will also delay the service control manager communication.

Bugfixes

  • Syslog Action: Fixed bug in Syslog Cache processing when saved messages were larger than 4096 bytes.
  • Filter Engine: Fixed Extended IP Filtering when using lower or greater compare operation.
  • File Configuration: Fixed reading Filter values containing backslashes.
    They weren’t removed properly in filter values.
