v5 rate limiting

CentOS 6 uses rsyslog which has rate limiting enabled. When too much comes in too fast, rsyslog says something like:

imuxsock begins to drop messages from pid $PID due to rate-limiting


Add to /etc/rsyslog.conf:

$SystemLogRateLimitInterval 0
$SystemLogRateLimitBurst 0

Note that this won't do anything to deal with losses that are udp-getting-dropped problems, but it raises the threshold of trouble somewhat higher than it otherwise would be.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
