Changelog for 7.3.14 (v7-beta)

Version 7.3.14 [beta] 2013-05-06

  • bugfix: some man pages were not properly installed either rscryutil or rsgtutil man was installed, but not both Thanks to Marius Tomaschewski for the patch.
  • bugfix: potential segfault on startup when builtin module was specified in module() statement. Thanks to Marius Tomaschewski for reporting the bug.
  • bugfix: segfault due to invalid dynafile cache handling Accidently, the old-style cache size parameter was used when the dynafile cache was created in a RainerScript action. If the old-style size was lower than the one actually set, this lead to misadressing when the size was overrun, and that could lead to all kinds of “interesting things”, often in segfaults. closes:

Changelog for 7.3.2 (v7-devel)

Version 7.3.2 [devel] 2012-10-30

  • totally reworked ratelimiting and “last message repeated n times”
    all over rsyslog code. Each of the supported inputs now supports
    linux-like ratelimiting (formerly only imuxsock did). Also, the
    “last message repeated n times” is now processed at the input side
    and no longer at the output side of rsyslog processing. This
    provides the basis for new future additions as well as usually more
    performance and a much simpler output part (which can be even further
