rsyslog imjournal module fails in the presence of mmjsonparse
Last modified: 2016-09-20 00:51:28 EDT
It looks like the rsyslog-8.8.0-immutable-json-props.patch does not work when imjournal and mmjsonparse modules are present and in use together.
For example: if I have this in my rsyslog.conf file:
Then the rsyslogd starts to chew up 100% CPU, logs are accepted, but nothing is emitted, and the memory usage of the process continues to grow.
See rsyslog upstream github issue, https://github.com/rsyslog/rsyslog/issues/593
The patch comment seems to indicate this is upstream, but it does not appear to be. Seems like we should drop this patch given the problem it poses.
