syslog-ng Open Source Edition 3.3.1 released
I’m proud to announce that syslog-ng 3.3.1 has been released.
It is an important release in a number of ways:
- syslog-ng architecture was completely revamped to scale properly in
today’s multi-core environments. I’ve seen it process 800000 messages /
second in some scenarios.
- following the licensing change in 3.2, it incorporates contributions
(code, testing & feedback) from 54 individuals.
In total, the development of 3.3 took about a year, producing 580 patches and the following diffstat:
294 files changed, 20314 insertions(+), 7624 deletions(-)
That compared to the total number of lines in the git repository (81804 lines) is a significant change over 3.2
