WARN message in Graylog

Hi All,

We are getting the below message when we enable Graylog output, can you please help to understand what this message is and how we can rectify it.

WARN [OutputBufferProcessor] Timeout reached. Not waiting any longer for stream output writer threads to complete.


This warning indicates that the output_module_timeout has been exceeded.

# Since 0.21 the Graylog server supports pluggable output modules. This means a single message can be written to multiple
# outputs. The next setting defines the timeout for a single output module, including the default output module where all
# messages end up.
# Time in milliseconds to wait for all message outputs to finish writing a single message.
#output_module_timeout = 10000

Thanks @patrickmann for your response. We are sending logs in GB/minute so do I need to increase the output_module_timeout from 10000 ?

You could certainly increase the timeout to make this warning less noisy. It’s just informational.

You might also want to review your configuration of processors / buffers to make sure outputs can keep up.
