rsyslog 0.8.1 released

Grossrinderfeld, 2005-03-10.

Adiscon today announced the immediate availability of rsyslog 0.8.1, an enhanced syslog daemon for Linux.  "I am proud to announce the first Adiscon open source tool targeted directly to system administrators", said president Rainer Gerhards, "our previous steps in the open source area were just related to other developers. With rsyslog, we now bring immediate value to the end user."

Rsyslog is a major new arrival in Adiscon's product matrix. Today's diverse IT environment and the growing acceptance for open source software provides new challenges and chances for system management. Being an long-term player in the system logging space, Adiscon has brought many ideas of its MonitorWare line of products to the Linux environment. Rsyslog, however, is not a totally new project. Adiscon listened to what system administrators were looking for in a newer and better syslogd. Then, the standard sysklogd package was analysed and the rsyslog project forked from sysklogd. Rsyslog's most important enhancements are:

  • direct support for MySQL databases
  • fully configurable, template-based output formats
  • high-precision timestamps

Release 0.8.1 is considered a beta build and distributed in order to gain user feedback. However, it already has undergone a lot of testing and bug fixing, but it is not recommended to be placed on important production machines.
