Syslog-NG: Number of allowed concurrent connections exceeded

When I moved from syslog to syslog-ng on my laptop running Fedora 7, I noticed a lot of these warnings in /var/log/messages:


Jul 10 09:29:34 speedy syslog-ng[2272]: Number of allowed concurrent connections exceeded; num='10', max='10'

Increasing the maximum number of connections for the Unix stream that reads /dev/log seemed to fixed this problem:


source s_sys {
file ("/proc/kmsg" log_prefix("kernel: "));
unix-stream ("/dev/log" max-connections(20));
internal();
# udp(ip(0.0.0.0) port(514));
};
