Hi all - first of all could you please reply to this email
address as well since I'm not subscribed on this list:

current setup:
Syslog-ng compiled and running on one machine as a
syslog master server and syslog-ng running on several
other machines that forward their messages to the
master machine.

problem 1:
Sep 26 11:41:13 umbriel syslog-ng[65195]: Error accepting AF_INET
connection from:, opened connections: 10, max: 10

The master server (umbriel) states it is out of connections?
Is this a configuration option that can be set, do I need to
hack the source code and recompile - or is it not doable at
all over one connection and is all I can do fire off a second
syslog-ng process on a different port and use that for 10 more
hosts (in total I'm looking into supporting about 80 hosts).

problem 2:
Sep 26 06:37:04 umbriel syslog-ng[65195]: AF_INET client connected from, port 36539
Sep 26 08:35:04 ariel syslog-ng[27849]: io.c: do_write: write() failed
(errno 32), Broken pipe
Sep 26 08:35:04 ariel syslog-ng[27849]: pkt_buffer::do_flush(): Error
flushing data
Sep 26 08:35:04 ariel syslog-ng[27849]: Connection broken, reopening in 60

I'm seeing *a lot* of these kinda of messages in the log file.
Is there something that can be done about this? Like timeout settings
that can be increased etc, etc?
