Table of contents

Updated March 11th, 2016

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 500,000 message buffer, while the free version has a 500 message buffer.
  • 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 amount 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 amount of messages being displayed, modify your device configurations to only send messages that meet a set level.
