Type: specific to immark input module

Default: 1200 (20 minutes)


This specifies when mark messages are to be written to output modules. The time specified is in seconds. Specifying 0 is possible and disables mark messages. In that case, however, it is more efficient to NOT load the immark input module.

So far, there is only one mark message process and any subsequent $MarkMessagePeriod overwrites the previous.

This parameter is only available after the immark input module has been loaded.


$MarkMessagePeriod  600 # mark messages appear every 10 Minutes

Available since: rsyslog 3.0.0
