RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.`omelasticsearch` in `rsyslog` now supports `rebindinterval` This update of the `rsyslog` packages introduces support for setting the time of periodical reconnection in the `omelasticsearch` module. You can improve performance when sending records to a cluster of Elasticsearch nodes by setting this parameter according to your scenario. The value of the `rebindinterval` parameter indicates the number of operations submitted to a node after which `rsyslog` closes the connection and establishes a new one. The default value `-1` means that `rsyslog` does not re-establish the connection.

Description Rich Megginson 2019-03-24 01:51:53 UTC
Description of problem:
When sending records to a cluster of Elasticsearch nodes through a proxy/router/load balancer, it is good to periodically reconnect to help the proxy/router/load balancer balance the load better.  Other modules support a rebindinterval parameter.  This adds support for omelasticsearch.  In testing with Fluentd, we found that reconnecting periodically can make a big difference in performance.
