We have just released 8.1.5 of the v8-devel branch. This release offers some important bug fixes and an enhanced imfile. It now supports inotify and has no longer a fixed limit on the number of files that can be monitored. Note that inotify must be enabled. By default, the previous polling mode is used. For details see parameter "mode" in the doc: http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/
Feedback is *very much* appreciated.
Best regards, Florian Riedl
