Subjectsyslogd: recvfrom inet: resource temporarily unavailable
Date
From
I am using a Dell PowerEdge 2300 running Red Hat Linux 7.2 for a
syslog consolidation machine. It is also our network monitoring
system and it runs Cricket, NMIS, and cflowd and Flowscan for Cisco
NetFlow collection.

Lately the machine has been running extremely slow whenever anything
that happens on the box needs to syslog something (su, logins, etc.).
I've checked /var/log/messages and it repeatedly contains the
following line:

Sep 6 14:23:54 cinshrnms02 syslogd: recvfrom inet: Resource
temporarily unavailable

Notice the Recv-Q for the syslog port (UDP 514) in the netstat output
below. The box does A LOT of SNMP polls as well as receives syslogs
from about 6-8 Cisco routers (3600 series and 7100 series) on T1 and
DS3 links.

My question is are there any compile-time or run-time options (via
/proc) that I can tweak to get better syslog/UDP performance out of
the box? Is there anything else at which I should be looking?

It's an old box (cpuinfo, meminfo, kernel info below), but I was
having similar problems on a quad Xeon 700 with 2GB RAM. I've already
upped /proc/sys/fs/file-max and /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range

I may just need beefier hardware, but I wanted to see if there was
anything else I could tweak before we spend cash :)

Thanks for your assistance,
Andy.
