From OpenSuSE Ports Tumbleweed for armv7hl

Name: rsyslog Distribution: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: 8.2108.0 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 1.1 Build date: Wed Oct 20 22:13:06 2021
Group: System/Daemons Build host: obs-arm-6
Size: 2471474 Source RPM: rsyslog-8.2108.0-1.1.src.rpm
Summary: The enhanced syslogd for Linux and Unix
Rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded syslogd supporting, among others,
MySQL, syslog/tcp, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any
message part, and fine grain output format control. It is quite
compatible to stock sysklogd and can be used as a drop-in replacement.
Its advanced features make it suitable for enterprise-class, encryption
protected syslog relay chains while at the same time being very easy to
setup for the novice user.

* Wed Aug 18 2021 Michael Ströder <>
  - Upgrade to rsyslog 8.2108.0:
    * 2021-08-16: openssl tls: Improved error message output on tls failures.
    * 2021-08-16: impstats: add percentile metrics tracking functionality
      Brief overview:
      TO configure tracking percentile metrics in rainerscript:
      User would need to define:
    - which percentile to track, such as [p50, p99, etc.]
    - window size - note, this correlates directly with memory usage to
      track the percentiles.
      To track a value, user would call built-in function `percentile_observe()` in their configurations to
      record an integer value, and percentile metrics would be emitted every
      impstats interval.
      Thanks to Nelson Yen for the patch.
    * 2021-08-12: imfile: add parameter "ignoreolderthanoption"
      instructs imfile not to ingest a file that has not been modified in the
      specified number of seconds.
      Thanks to github user yanjunli76 for the patch (submitted from Nelson Yen)
    * 2021-08-10: imklog bugfix: invalid memory adressing, could cause abort
      This is a regeression from commit 94c4a87. It introduced a free() call
      using an object that was no longer valid (the main pointer to the
      to-be-freed object) was already freed at time of use. This could
      cause various issues, including a segfault.
      Note: this bug was triggerred only during late phase of rsyslog
      shutdown, so it did not affect regular operation.
      Special thanks to github user wxiaoguang for analyzing the issue
      and providing a draft fix proposal, on which this patch builds.

    * 2021-08-09: imfile bugfix: deleteStateOnFileDelete missed some state files
      When the log file is deleted, imfile would attempt to delete the statefile but it
      was missing the file_id part of the statefile name. This means the statefiles were
      only removed in the log file was less than 512 characters, because for very small
      files the file ID hash is not created. This lead to some state files not being
      Thanks to pearseimperva for the patch.
    * 2021-08-09: imfile bugfix: hash char invalidly added in readmode != 0
      If imfile is ingesting log files with readMode set to 2 or 1, the resulting
      messages all have a '#' character at the end. This patch corrects the behaviour.
      Note: if some external script "supported" the bug of extra hash character at
      the end of line, it may be necessary to update them.
    * 2021-08-09: omelasticsearch bugfix: errorFile mutex was not consistently locked
      Lock the file during SIGHUPs to avoid issues with concurrent accesses by
      Thanks to François Poirotte for the patch.
    * 2021-08-09: imudp: add socket type (IPv4 vs. 6) to input name
      Most importantly, the input name is used for stats counter names as
      well. Previously, the same name was used for IPv4 and IPv6, so we had
      two counters with an equal name. That left users puzzled.
      Unfortunately, this change can potentially require changes to existing
      analysis scripts, as the name is now slightly different.
    * 2021-08-06: omfwd: add capability for action-specific TLS certificate settings
      This permits to override the global definitions for TLS certificates
      at the action() level.
    * 2021-08-06: imfile bugfix: file handle leak if "freshStartTail" was turned on
    * 2021-08-05: imtcp: permit to use different certificate files per input/action
      This completes the ability to override global/default TLS settings at the imtcp
      input() level. Support for using multiple CAs/Certs per Connection is now provided.
    * 2021-08-04: imptcp bugfix: keep alive interval was incorrectly set
      The interval was accidentally set to keep alive interval. This has been
    * 2021-07-08: openssl network driver bugfix: small memory leak
      Fixes a static, non-growing memory leak which existed when parameter
      "GnutTLSPriorityString" was used. This was primarily a cosmetic issue,
      but caused some grief during development in regard to memory leak
      Note: yes, this is for openssl -- the parameter name is historical.
    * 2021-07-07: psrv bugfix: abort if no listener could be started
      Modules (like imtcp and imdiag) which use tcpsrv could abort or
      otherwise malfunction if no listener for a specific input could
      be started.
      Found during implementing a new feature, no report from practice.
      But could very well happen.
    * 2021-07-07: mmkubernetes bugfix: apiserver error handling
    - Added graceful handling of apiserver errors with unexpected responses,
      i.e., anything other than 200, 404, or 429. Idea is that apiserver
      transient error state will recover. We don't want mmkubernetes to miss
      metadata resolution for containers that don't have cached metadata.
      During these transient error states, mmkubernetes will provide basic
      container file path based resolution of namespace and pod metadata for
      new pods whose metadata is not yet cached. After this error state
      recovers, mmkubernetes is expected to resume its metadata resolution as
    - Added a unit test case for apiserver return 500 with changes to mock server
    - Fixed existing unit test that was failing due to missing expected results file
    - Added mmkubernetes unit tests to testbench
      Thanks to Abdul Waheed for the patch (submitted from Nelson Yen).
    * 2021-07-07: ommongodb bugfixes
    - Fix Segmentation fault when server is down
    - Add server connexion check while resuming
      Thanks to Kevin Guillemot for the patch.
    * 2021-06-28: omkafka improvements
    - drain librdkafka queues and retry later during rsyslog restart or hup. This
      re-injects messages into rsyslog's native queues.
    - add statsname on per kafka instance for better visibility
    - omkafka - count errors related ssl as "errors_ssl"
      Thanks to Nelson Yen for the patch.
    * 2021-06-23: some CI/QA improvements, Travis-CI disabled
      For the time being, Travis CI is disabled because it was outdated and Travis also
      changed their system. We will re-evaluate if we re-enable it. Since quite a while
      the Travits tests were redundant with the rest of CI, so this does not reduce
    * 2021-06-23: omhttp bugfix: dynrestpath param in batch mode invalid
      When batchmode was used, the templates could not be used to
      expand dynrestpath. We are now storing the restpath param
      within the batch data if we are in batch mode.
      When we are in batch mode, and the restpath value changes, the
      batch is submitted and reinitialized
    * 2021-06-17: add predefined template RSYSLOG_SyslogRFC5424Format
      This is essentially the same as RSYSLOG_SyslogProtocol23Format with
      a better name and a fix to remove the unnecessary LF at the end of
      the message.
      The different name also enables us to fix the LF issue without
      any concern about backwards compatibility.
    * 2021-06-17: impstats/bugfix: _sender_stats reports integer counter as string
      Note that this introduces a small backwards incompatibility: in previous output
      the field was of string type, now it is integer (as intended). We discussed this
      on the mailing list and the overwhelming thought was that this is not a problem
      because almost all analysis backends are able to cover that format change. This made
      the bugfix essentially costmetic.
      HOWEVER, if you still experience issues, please let us know. We can add an option
      to provide the previous format, and just spared to do so because there was no
      evidence it was needed.
* Tue Jun 15 2021 Michael Ströder <>
  - Upgrade to rsyslog 8.2106.0:
    * NOTE: the prime new feature is support for TLS and non-TLS connections
      via imtcp in parallel. Furthermore, most TLS parameters can now be overriden
      at the input() level. The notable exceptions are certificate files, something
      that is due to be implemented as next step.
    * 2021-06-14: new global option "parser.supportCompressionExtension"
      This permits to turn off rsyslog's single-message compression extension
      when it interferes with non-syslog message processing (the parser
      subsystem expects syslog messages, not generic text)
    * 2021-05-12: imtcp: add more override config params to input()
      It is now possible to override all module parameters at the input() level. Module
      parameters serve as defaults. Existing configs need no modification.
    * 2021-05-06: imtcp: add stream driver parameter to input() configuration
      This permits to have different inputs use different stream drivers
      and stream driver parameters.
    * 2021-04-29: imtcp: permit to run multiple inputs in parallel
      Previously, a single server was used to run all imtcp inputs. This
      had a couple of drawsbacks. First and foremost, we could not use
      different stream drivers in the varios inputs. This patch now
      provides a baseline to do that, but does still not implement the
      capability (in this sense it is a staging patch).
      Secondly, we now ensure that each input has at least one exclusive
      thread for processing, untangling the performance of multiple
      inputs from each other.
      see also:
    * 2021-04-27: tcpsrv bugfix: potential sluggishnes and hang on shutdown
      tcpsrv is used by multiple other modules (imtcp, imdiag, imgssapi, and,
      in theory, also others - even ones we do not know about). However, the
      internal synchornization did not properly take multiple tcpsrv users
      in consideration.
      As such, a single user could hang under some circumstances. This was
      caused by improperly awaking all users from a pthread condition wait.
      That in turn could lead to some sluggish behaviour and, in rare cases,
      a hang at shutdown.
      Note: it was highly unlikely to experience real problems with the
      officially provided modules.
    * 2021-04-22: refactoring of syslog/tcp driver parameter passing
      This has now been generalized to a parameter block, which makes it much cleaner and
      also easier to add new parameters in the future.
    * 2021-04-22: config script: add re_match_i() and re_extract_i() functions
      This provides case-insensitive regex functionality.
