NUL terminated syslog messages

Postby agsharath » Wed Oct 21, 2015 7:59 am

Older versions of python SysLogHandler pass a nul terminated string via tcp to rsyslog daemon.
But rsyslog daemon is not recognizing this.
Please help.

(I'm just another user btw)

Could you perhaps customise the message format in the Syslog Forward action to add a NULL character at the end? e.g. \0

Currently it is not possible to pass a NULL Byte in a string through the syslog action.
It would become difficult as the NULL Byte also terminates a string in most cases.

Perhaps you can contact and ask for a special NULL Byte character property.
