Maximum number of messages for Kiwi Syslog Daemon

Table of contents

Updated July 06, 2018

Overview

This article explains the maximum number of messages that the Kiwi Syslog Daemon can handle. 

Environment

All Kiwi Syslog versions

Detail

  • The licensed version of the software can handle around 2 million messages per hour and the free version handles about 300,000 per hour. The licensed version has been regularly tested to handle 400-600 messages per second while logging to file.
  • The licensed version has been increased to have a default 500,000 message buffer, while the free version has a maximum 500 message buffer.

    The licensed version allows you to set a maximum buffer of 10,000,000 messages.

  • If you suspect that you may be losing messages, Go to the File > Debug options > View message buffer option to check that the Message Queue overflow value is always 0. This indicates the number of messages that have been dropped.
  • If you are running the Service version then this same information can be found from the Manage > Debug options menu.
  • To decrease the number of messages being displayed, modify your device configurations to only send messages that meet a set level.
