About this release

Welcome to syslog-ng Store Box. This document describes what is new in the latest version of syslog-ng Store Box (SSB).

This is a Feature Release, which means that it will be supported for 6 months after the original publication date and for 2 months after a succeeding Feature or LTS Release is published (whichever date is later). Note that only the last of the feature releases is supported - for example, when a new feature release comes out, the last one becomes unsupported.

For a full description on stable and feature releases, open the SSB product page on the Support Portal and navigate to Product Life Cycle & Policies > Product Support Policies > Software Product Support Lifecycle Policy.


New features

New features in SSB version 6.5.0:

  • From version 6.5, syslog-ng Store Box (SSB) supports configuring MSSQL and Oracle SQL sources.

  • Limitations to upgrading your SSB to version 6.5. Consider the following:


    Hazard of data loss!

    SNMP destinations and SQL sources have been removed in SSB version 5.2. Do not upgrade to SSB 6.5.0 if you are currently using and want to continue to use your SNMP destinations.

    These functionalities have been removed from SSB starting with SSB version 5 F2 (5.2.0). Staying on 5 LTS and its minor versions means that you will not have access to the HDFS destination functionality available in SSB starting with version 5.1.0, however, you will continue to get support for 3 years after the original publication date of 5 LTS (December 2017) and for 1 year after the next LTS release is published (whichever date is later).
