Upstream NEWS
Tue, 16 Mar 2010 17:15:40 +0100

* Fixed Solaris 10 SMF script to properly handle svcadm refresh
* Fixed a possible segmentation fault for unix-dgram/unix-stream
destinations on some (non-Linux) platforms.
* Fixed processing empty log entries when using the syslog()

* Fixed processing partially received syslog messages.

Other changes:
* Decrease the frequency of gettimeofday() calls during syslog-ng
operation, as gettimeofday() is expensive to call on some
* The SQL destination will only attempt to INSERT a given log
message 3 times, and after that it gives up, instead of trying
* Tru64 portability fixes.
* The functional test program was improved to check the new RFC5424
syslog protocol.

* Fixed two major memory leaks, one on input messages, one in
* Fixed escaped structured data processing.
* Fixed expanding SDATA references in templates which have multiple
dots in its name (e.g. when an OID is present in the name of the
SD param or SD-ID.
* pdbtool now correctly zero pads month and day fields in publish
date of the merged patterndb file.
* pdbtool won't link to unnecessary libraries, which fixes a
compilation problem on Solaris with flex installed.

This is the first public release of syslog-ng Open Source
Edition 3.1.

syslog-ng 3.1 is the first so called "feature release" of

as such its support period ends when either the next feature (named
3.2) or the next stable (named 4.0) version is published.

New features:
* Support for patterndb v2 and v3 format, along with a bunch of new
parsers: ANYSTRING, IPv6, IPvANY and FLOAT.

* Added a new "pdbtool" utility to manage patterndb files: convert
them from v1 or v2 format, merge mulitple patterndb files
into one

and look up matching patterns given a specific message.

* Support for message tags: tags can be assigned to log messages as
they enter syslog-ng: either by the source driver or via

Later it these tags can be used for efficient filtering.

* Added support for rewriting structured data.

* Macros and name-value pairs got a little tighter integration,
in filters where syslog-ng 3.0 was limited to only use name-value
pairs, with 3.1 you can also use macros.

* Enhanced dynamic name-value performance by a factor of three.

* Some parsers got additional features: NUMBER is now able to parse
hexadecimal numbers, ESTRING is now able to search for multiple
characters as the end of the string.

* Added non-standard and non-portable facility codes (range 10-15),
decouple syslog-ng facility name information from the system used
to compile syslog-ng on.
