[syslog-ng] rabbitmq errors

Nothing intended limits syslog-ng here. That error message happens when
rabbitmq returns an error condition. It definitely should include a more
detailed error cause.

Syslog-ng suspends this destination for a few seconds (controlled by
time-reopen ()) And then reconnects to the amqp server.

I’m seeing an error in my log indicating that messages aren’t being sent to
a queue in RabbitMQ.  This happens a few times a week.  Here’s the error:

Nov 24 13:29:28 syslog09 syslog-ng[7883]: Network error while inserting
into AMQP server; time_reopen='10'

I have about 1000 servers sending tcp messages through a call to /dev/tcp
to port on the syslog-ng server.  It seems messages aren’t sent to the
queue for about 1 or 2 minutes, and then it resumes sending again without
error.  Could this be a network issue or something within syslog-ng that’s
limiting the messages?
