1.146.1. RHBA-2011:0484: rsyslog bug fix update
Updated rsyslog packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rsyslog packages provide an enhanced, multi-threaded syslog daemon that supports MySQL, syslog/TCP, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any message part, and fine grained output format control.
* The rsyslog bug fix update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5, which is advisory RHBA-2010:0213, contained an enhancement that increased the number of clients that rsyslog was able to handle. However, an issue with the build tool chain resulted in the source code patch failing to apply, with the results that large numbers of clients could have caused rsyslogd to crash due to a segmentation fault. The patch has been successfully applied with this update, and rsyslogd is now able to handle a large number of clients without crashing. (BZ#692954
All users of rsyslog are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixes this bug.
