APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • SSP configured to write log events to syslog, messages greater
    than ~1k are
    being fragmented before being written to the network interface
    (by SSP,
    it would seem).  This is causing issues for script(s) that are
    parsing
    the log events and expect to find messages on separate lines
    without
    (unnecesasry, in this case) fragmentation.
    

Local fix

  • STRRTC- 368531
    SD/SD
    No Workaround Available
    

Problem summary

  • SSP log messages greater than 1000 bytes are being fragmented
    before writing to syslog.
    When forwarding SSP log information to syslogd using the
    syslogd parameters in <ssp>/bin/log.properties, the messages
    get split into 1000 byte chunks.  This can cause a problem with
    downstream applications that parse the messages.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added support for a new parameter,
    syslogd.maxmsglength=<value>, in the <ssp>/bin/log.properties
    file which overrides the default 1000 byte message length.
    

Temporary fix

  • Added configuration option for writing larger buffers to Syslog.
    

Comments

  • Fix included in SSP3417.
