syslog-ng multithreaded performance
It seems that the BalaBit syslog-ng team that produces the Premium Edition of syslog-ng has beaten the community project this time, at least in terms of release date.
syslog-ng Premium Edition 4F1 (e.g. the first feature release past 4.0) has been released this week. It is the first release of PE in a long time that is actually based on an actual OSE core, namely 3.3.
I still have about 100 patches to review and integrate into OSE, hopedully with community involvement. But more about that in an upcoming post.
It is also interesting that some performanc testing was also done, and the new core does pretty well, and scales nicely on an 8 core machine, up to 800k msg/sec in @some onfigurations. Here’s the post the has some more details.
Now, if only the fixes they did were integrated properly to the OSE repository. but hey, life would be easy without challenges.
