I wonder if you have a local problem. I have
rsyslog-5.10.0-2.4.1.x86_64 and do not see truncated entries in
/var/log/messages ???
Well, there are now two people with the same problem, so I don't think
so. However, I repeatedly installed the old version of rsyslog and the
new one, and it was consistent: the new one failed with the same
configuration. If there is some new needed setting that should be
enabled on the new version, they should say so somewhere, I suppose.
then possibly a locale problem. I have LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8.

I noticed "it appears" the same chars are dropped from similar looking log
entries ????

Hi Patrick,

I use the same locale. Here is mine:

bunyip:~ # locale
LANG=POSIX
LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=

I wonder what other parameter or other changes between rsyslog-5.10.0-2.4.1.x86_64 and rsyslog-5.8.5-6.4.1.x86_64. I tried the following:

rsyslog-5.8.5-6.4.1.x86_64 (no truncation in logs)

updated to rsyslog-5.8.11-2.1.3.x86_64 (no truncation in logs)

updated to rsyslog-5.10.0-2.4.1.x86_64 (truncation!! as per previous emails)

If I re-install rsyslog-5.8.5 or 5.8.11 the truncation goes away - it is very consistent, not sure if this means anything or helps identify the problem!

Best regards. Otto.

PS: Hmm...both are production systems so they are never re-booted. I wonder if I reboot the system whether the problem goes away????
