InputTCPMaxListeners for 2000 servers

Postby sloe » Thu Feb 15, 2018 6:29 pm


I want to ensure my new rsyslog server has enough resources to cope with the UDP and TCP connections to it from all my clients. They are a mix of rsyslog/TCP and syslog/UDP totalling 2000 clients?

Which values should I adjust to avoid running out of resources?

For TCP I've found these, but nothing yet for UDP.
# TCP Settings
$InputTCPMaxSessions 600
$InputTCPMaxListeners 60

Are there any recommendations for TCP and UDP?

Best wishes, Sophie
