I looked through the script but couldn’t find anything which would cause a reload.

It may be a good idea if somebody else double checks.


In the systems you experience the crashes, do you have anything running in a chroot jail (bind, postfix,etc.) ?

Unix-stream was not the problem, I just upgraded a VM and syslog-ng died

Whatever the underlying cause I guess it is connected with the reload command. Do we have any instances of the crash happening after syslog-ng restart rather than reload? Maybe at upgrade the script could just use syslog-ng restart instead of reload?
