Get NXLog to use a random port for each connection

Hi All,

I wonder if someone can answer this for me.

According to the documentation, it states that for a UDP client, the localport will be a random high port as per https://nxlog.co/documentation/nxlog-user-guide/om_udp.html

I have a situation where I am sending Zeek logs via UDP through a Google Seesaw load balancer see https://github.com/google/seesaw

Memory issues on NXLog

We have an application that does some multiple updates every morning between 6am and 7am. During this time, it generates massive amounts of log entries.
This in turn causes the box to run out of memory, triggering Linux's OOM daemon. Running the NxLog-ce.

I have added

PersistLogqueue TRUE
SyncLogqueue TRUE
CacheFlushInterval always
CacheSync TRUE
