Are there commonly used tuning options for rsyslog, networking stack and kernel? I have found a bit of information (links below) and have made a few changes but I am curious if there are any low hanging fruit to increase my message rate. To that end what are "normal" message rates for the various versions of rsyslog? I know a lot of this is subjective depending on various factors unique to each system but I am curious of commonly hit performance issues that can be tuned around.
