mongoDB : v2.0.6 released

Bug fix release, it is now available in portage. Starting from this package version I introduced a logrotate script which compresses daily the mongodb logs and keeps them for a year.

Release highlights :

  • mongos does not send reads to secondaries after replica restart when using keyFiles
  • If only slaveDelay’d nodes are available, use them
  • OplogReader has no socket timeout

rsyslog : new v6 branch in portage

The first ebuild of the v6.2 stable branch of rsyslog is finally available in portage. This branch provides functional and performance enhancements of rsyslog.

Quick highlights :

  • Hadoop (HDFS) support has been considerably speeded up by supporting batched insert mode.
  • TCP transmission overhead for TLS has been dramatically improved.
  • TCP supports input worker thread pools.
  • Support of log normalization via liblognorm rule bases. This permits very high performance normalization of semantically equal messages from different devices (and thus in different syntaxes).

Interesting upcoming features such as mongoDB support and the enhanced config language are on the way with v6.4. Stay tuned !
