When outputting lots of debug logs via rsyslogd , I’ve seen the following error.

/var/log/syslog
mint-13 rsyslogd-2177: imuxsock begins to drop messages from pid 32272 due to rate-limiting


PID 32272 is unbound process.

To solve this ,  turning off rate-limiting.

or

change logging configuration of PID 32272 to reduce the amount of logs


I’ll change rsyslog.conf.
edit /etc/rsyslog.conf ( add the red line )
$ModLoad imuxsock # provides support for local system logging
$SystemLogRateLimitInterval 0 # turn off rate limiting

restart rsyslog
mint-13 rsyslog.d # /etc/init.d/rsyslog restart
