tail -f my
/var/secure log file the data in it is about 3 hours behind the current time. This only happens when someone attacks this particular server and the
secure log files blows up with attempts. Eventually the log file will catch up when the attacks stop.
I have plenty of memory and CPU on the system. Here is
rsyslogd 25935 root 8w REG 253,1 8786717 269791 /var/log/secure
It seems like
rsyslogd is having buffering issues but im not sure how to fix this and it bothers me. I have mitigated the attacks so this doesn't happen very often but I would love to know why this happens.
