Dear syslog-ng users,
This is the 13th issue of the syslog-ng Insider, a monthly newsletter
that brings you syslog-ng related news.
Your feedback and news tips about the next issue is welcome at
Have you tried to add custom information to log messages, fix
mis-formatted logs or anonymize logs?
The next long-time-supported release of SSB version 3 LTS is about to be
released. This release includes a switch to 64-bit architecture, a huge
performance improvement in the indexing/searching feature for a large
number of message and search patterns and a couple of new features, too.
The following post plans to introduce those new features to you. The
updated User’s Manual will contain a detailed description of them —
post is written more to serve as teaser and to highlight some of the use
cases we had in mind when we’d planned the features, and, of course, to
ask for your feedback about them.
syslog-ng participates in GSoC
This year syslog-ng participates in GSoC under the umbrella of openSUSE.

What the student will do:
One of the major reasons to update to 3.3 other than threading is
MongoDB. It allows great flexibility when using patterns and storing

into a single document and extends it with features from the upcoming
syslog-ng 3.4 version.
