The rocket-fast system for log processing

ChangeLog for 3.21.1 (devel)

Version 3.21.1 [DEVEL] (rgerhards), 2008-07-30

  • bugfix: no error was reported if the target of a $IncludeConfig
    could not be accessed.

  • added testbed for common config errors
  • enhanced config file checking – no active actions are detected
  • added -N rsyslogd command line option for a config validation run
    (which does not execute actual syslogd code and does not interfere
    with a running instance)

  • somewhat improved emergency configuration. It is now also selected
    if the config contains no active actions

  • rsyslogd error messages are now reported to stderr by default. can be
    turned off by the new "$ErrorMessagesToStderr off" directive

Thanks to HKS for suggesting the new features.
