[syslog-ng] rabbitmq errors

So are messages lost when this happens, or are they resent when after reconnection?

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?
