Kiwi Syslog Crashes When Logging Messages to MySQL Database

Updated September 28, 2017


This article explains how to resolve an error that causes Kiwi Syslog Server to crash when attempting to log a message onto a MySQL database.


  • Kiwi Syslog Server
  • MySQL Database


This happens on certain syslog messages, such as:

SYSTEM Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registryfile may not function properly afterwards. DETAIL - 5 user registry handles leaked from \\Registry\\User

The system stops logging messages to the database when it receives a specific log containing " \\ ". 

DB error "DBLogger.ClearQueue aborted with error: Database error executing SQL statement: [MySQL][ODBC 5.1 Driver][mysqld-5.7.17-log]You have an error in your SQL syntax"



Configure the message format to increase the accepted message ("MsgText") length. In Kiwi Syslog Service Manager, click File > Setup > Modifiers > edit Maximum message length to a number greater than the largest message received from the monitored device.


Increasing the message length size avoids the " \ " character at the end of a message, which is recognized in the database as a syntax error.
