Bug Fix Advisory rsyslog bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0213-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-03-30
Last updated on: 2010-03-30
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated rsyslog package that fixes various bugs and adds enhancements
are
now available.

The rsyslog package is an enhanced, multi-threaded syslog daemon. It
supports MySQL, syslog/TCP, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on
any message part, and fine grain output format control. It is compatible
with stock syslogd and can be used as a drop-in replacement. Rsyslog is
simple to set up, with advanced features suitable for enterprise-class,
encryption-protected syslog relay chains.

rsyslog has been rebased to upstream version 3.22.1-3. The rebased package
provides fixes for the following bugs:

* when rsyslog had directories creation disabled with $CreateDirs off,
regular file creation was also disabled. This resulted in a situation where
directory creation needed to be enabled to allow regular file creation.
File creation is now allowed in existing directories, even while directory
creation is disabled. (BZ#473419)

* if remote messages were being queued, the local rsyslog daemon would stop
logging when messages were being discarded or if TCP connections were being
rejected. This also caused some applications to fail. The configuration
details were updated, and local messages now continue being logged, even
when remote messages are queued. (BZ#519201 & BZ#519203)

These rebased packages also provide the following enhancements:

* rsyslog can now handle a greater number of clients. (BZ#475217)

* support has been added for Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption and
conditional filters. (BZ#488068)

* timezone conversion support has been added. All rsyslog messages should
now appear in local time. (BZ#499186)

* the rsyslog server can now handle more than 1000 open files and
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connections. (BZ#519192)

All users of rsyslog are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which resolve these issues and add these enhancements.
