Fixed In Version: rsyslog-8.2102.0-8.el8
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.Added a maximum size option for Rsyslog error files Using the new `action.errorfile.maxsize` option, you can specify a maximum number of bytes of the error file for the Rsyslog log processing system. When the error file reaches the specified size, Rsyslog cannot write any additional errors or other data in it. This prevents the error file from filling up the file system and making the host unusable.
