    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 2.10.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Appenders
    • Environment:

      Sender: Java 8, Debian 7.11, rsyslogd 7.6.3
      Syslog server: Ubuntu 14.0, rsyslogd 8.23.0

      Description

      We use the attached configuration in projects with Java8 on Debian 7.11. After upgrading from 2.8.2 to 2.9.1, we notice that the appName field has a number (probably the pid of the process) attached in brackets, i.e. instead of "foo" it's "foo[21063]". Since we have configured rsyslog on the receiving side to create directories with the appName field, this creates a new log directory every time the application is restarted.
