We have just released rsyslog 6.1.3, the new v6-devel.
This release brings a number of enhancements.
First of all, it provides exciting new functionality in the form or an experimental MongoDB output plugin and various message parsers. The latter greatly increases rsyslog’s ability to common malformed syslog message formats. Also, ommysql now allows a much more fine-grained control over MySQL settings.
Then, a number of performance enhancements are made available: both imtcp and imptcp have an optimized code based and imptcp has been enhanced to be able to run multiple input threads concurrently (the same is planned for imtcp in the not so distant future). Also, imdup has now the capability to run at real-time priority, which greatly reduces the chance of message loss. Finally, there are a couple of bug fixes inside this release.
We are especially proud that some of the important new features were contributed code: David Lang contributed the message parsers, Victor Pereira the experimental MongoDB module, Dražen Kačar the imudp realtime-support and Ariel P. the enhancements for ommysql. Many thanks to all of you!
Please see the ChangeLog for more details.
As always, feedback is appreciated.
