The rocket-fast system for log processing

ChangeLog for 5.1.1 (devel)

Version 5.1.1 [DEVEL] (rgerhards), 2009-07-03

  • bugfix: huge memory leak in queue engine (made rsyslogd unusable in production). Occured if at least one queue was in direct mode (the default for action queues)
  • imported many performance optimizations from v4-devel (4.5.0)
  • bugfix: subtle (and usually irrelevant) issue in timout processing timeout could be one second too early if nanoseconds wrapped
  • set a more sensible timeout for shutdow, now 1.5 seconds to complete processing (this also removes those cases where the shutdown message was not written because the termination happened before it)
  • numerous enhancements and fixes imported from the v4 branch
