rsyslog work log

The past day’s rsyslog work log:
– undid part of yesterdays stage work – q worker 0 does not have management
chores, will use another solution (not needed yet)
– begun to permit queue to terminate without being drained
– fixed a starvation condition in queueWorker (pthread_yield() was needed)
could not be seen with any previously released code, came up during
new development
– added $MainMsgQueueImmediateShutdown config directive
– some name cleanup
– added non-circular file stream mode
– added some debug instrumentation to obj_t type, so that invalidly passed
objects can be detected (else we use the jump table and do not know why
everything messes up)
– file stream objects are now persistent on immediate queue shutdown (queue itself
is not yet fully persisted)
– support for object property bags added
– queue can now persist disk queue information on immediate shutdown
– added function to de-serialize a property bag (untested as other code is yet
– support for de-serializing strm objects added
– partial ability to read a disk queue back in (not completed, but would like
to save source for the weekend)
– support for reading back persisted queue information completed
– added $MainMsgQueuePersistUpdateCount config file directive
– renamed $MainMsgQueuePersistUpdateCount config file directive to
– changed queue shutdown procedure a bit – stage work for queue shutdown
