Newton Series Release Notes


New Features

  • The rsyslog_server role now has support for CentOS 7.

  • The rsyslog_server role now supports the ability to configure whether apt/yum tasks install the latest available package, or just ensure that the package is present. The default action is to ensure that the latest package is present. The action taken may be changed to only ensure that the package is present by setting rsyslog_server_package_state to present.

Upgrade Notes

  • The rsyslog_server role always checks whether the latest package is installed when executed. If a deployer wishes to change the check to only validate the presence of the package, the option rsyslog_server_package_state should be set to present.

  • The variable rsyslog_server_packages has been replaced by rsyslog_server_distro_packages.

  • New overrides are provided to allow for better customization around logfile retention and rate limiting for UDP/TCP sockets. rsyslog_server_logrotation_window defaults to 14 days rsyslog_server_ratelimit_interval defaults to 0 seconds rsyslog_server_ratelimit_burst defaults to 10000

  • The rsyslog.conf is now using v7+ style configuration settings
