The rocket-fast system for log processing

ChangeLog for 4.3.1 (devel)

Version 4.3.1 [DEVEL] (rgerhards), 2009-05-25

  • added capability to run multiple tcp listeners (on different ports)
  • performance enhancement: imtcp calls parser no longer on input thread but rather inside on of the potentially many main msg queue worker threads (an enhancement scheduled for all input plugins where this is possible)
  • added $GenerateConfigGraph configuration command which can be used to generate nice-looking (and very informative) rsyslog configuration graphs.
  • added $ActionName configuration directive (currently only used for graph generation, but may find other uses)
  • improved doc
    * added (hopefully) easier to grasp queue explanation

  • improved testbench
    * added tests for queue disk-only mode (checks disk queue logic)

  • bugfix: light and full delay watermarks had invalid values, badly affecting performance for delayable inputs
  • build system improvements – thanks to Michael Biebl
  • added new testing module imdiag, which enables to talk to the rsyslog core at runtime. The current implementation is only a beginning, but can be expanded over time
