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.
