Rapid fire remote syslog messages

  • Is there a way to limit excessive remote syslog messages like;

    "dpinger: abc sendto error: 64"
    "kernel: fq_codel_enqueue over limit"
    "kernel: fq_codel_enqueue maxidx = abc"

    Most messages don't do this, just the ones like those listed above as examples. It swamps my monitoring app with a few hundred repetitive messages within a few seconds until it exceeds what the api address allows in one day so I don't get any more messages that day. And I have to clear my local syslog manager's mail queue every time it happens.
