0000157: rsyslog spams logs many "rsyslogd-2007: action 'action 17' suspended" messages
Since the jessie/15.08 update the syslog (/var/log/syslog), rsyslog logs a high number of this log entries:
       "rsyslogd-2007: action 'action 17' suspended"

This appears to be a somewhat known issues, see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=742113 [^]

The issue is related to the default rsyslog.conf rule for logging to /dev/xconsole.

see /var/log/syslog
Suggested fix for bananian:
disable xconsole logging by commenting out xconsole rules in /etc/rsyslog.conf as part of bananian setup:
