rsyslogd - having to wait for timeout on shutdown/reboot


Hi all

I partially succeeded in setting up automount of some Windows shares.

Since this has happened, when I reboot, the rsyslogd daemon makes the entire process double in time to complete becuase it has to wait for timeout.

Sure it's an easy fix?

The great thing about Linux is that you can always find out what's happening. When rsyslogd is in that state, what is it waiting for? You can get some clue by just looking at its /proc entry (wchan, maybe fd entries.) Or strace it. Or just gstack.

I don't see why automounting would affect rsyslogd, unless you introduced some kind of dependency yourself. Is rsyslogd writing to these automounted windows shares? (That would be a pretty dubious architecture...)

Thank you for your reply!

Due to my noobness I have in fact reinstalled (several times actually) and this has yet to become a problem again - although I havent gotten round to setting up persistent mapping again yet!

I may be back!

Yep, it's back.

Is there a way I can either change the rsyslogd timeout or kill it automatically prior to shutdown?

What does it do anyway? I dont have anything syslog related set up!
