Re: 5.8.10 RELP server exhausting connections and stops responding
[In reply to]
I have started to encounter a problem with a RELP based rsyslog server
which was described in a post to this list about 6 months ago. I have
similar releases of rsyslog mentioned in the post.
Before swinging into debug mode, I wanted to see if the problem has been
identified. So, has anyone encountered a similar problem? Was it
resolved by going to a more recent release?
The old post is below.
Any advise is welcome.
[rsyslog] 5.8.10 RELP server exhausting connections and stops

Ive run into an issue with RELP where the server side doesnt
stale TCP connections (in particular its isolated to
initiated by clients that go through a firewall that according
network admins is configured to close TCP sessions that have
for 30 min or more). We noticed that connections that didnt go
firewall dont seem to have this issue. During normal operation,
server uses about 220 TCP connections and when it stops
of few days of running it has around 800-1000, most of which are
old idle connections that are never closed.
I found a similar thread here where it happens on plain TCP
1. If I use $ActionSendTCPRebindInterval, will this also apply
or does it only affect the normal TCP transport?
2. (Question from my network admin, excuse my wording if it
weird:) Besides the above setting is there any option on the
to tell the client to reuse a previous existing connect that the
side keeps open by sending a "RST" to the TCP connection if it
isnt? I looked through the doc and the only option I found even
was the one above, just want to make sure I didnt miss any
If anyone has other suggestions on how to possibly resolve this,
be most grateful to hear about them.
