From /var/log/messages file I saw rsyslogd core dumped.
# cat /var/log/messages | grep rsyslog Jun 1 01:41:48 host rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="5.8.10" x-pid="1835" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd was HUPed Jun 1 02:06:29 host abrt: Saved core dump of pid 59496 (/sbin/rsyslogd) to /var/spool/abrt/ccpp-2014-06-01-02:06:26-59496 (458936320 bytes)
I also found that it died with SIGSEGV. What does SIGSEGV mean?
# abrt-cli info -d /var/spool/abrt/ccpp-2014-06-01-19:04:11-52602 | grep reason reason: Process /sbin/rsyslogd was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
