Elasticsearch with Community Edition

Is the Output module to ElasticSearch available/will be available in the community edition?

When I last checked it was a feature of the commerical edition only. 

I have been a nxlog champion for years now and have been forwarding to logstash. However with Elasticsearch ingest nodes, there is one extra redundent step now.

This will tip the scale to moving off into native beats/rsyslog if there are no plans to make this available.

 

Thanks

Question: Input vs. Processor Module

Hi there,

this might be a strange question but I'm new nxlog and was wondering what the difference between an input module and a processor module is.
the background to my question is:
I want to collect logs centrally on an nxlog server, and have configured all my clients to send their logs in a nxlog-binary format. at the moment I'm testing this with Windows IIS webserver logs.

NXLog time configurations

Hi,

My scenario is:  (Windows server + nxlog configured for Windows events) => Logstash => Elasticsearch

I am wondering where nxlog stores current informations about sent Windows Events (for every category).
If i need to resend a few Windows events from past, how i can do it?

Multiple use of the same execution block

Hi,

 

I've to use the same exec block multiple times in different paths. I've already tried it with a processor module, but unfortunately a processor module could only be used once. A possible solution is to implement them in the input modules, but I've more than one input module (syslog tcp/udp alone are already two) which ends in multiple code in different modules. But I want them once and want to use them multiple times.

Have someone an idea how to implement this?

Read current log file named as <date>.log with nxlog

Hi,

My Server's TimeZone is EST(UTC-5) but the application running in the server has EET(UTC+2). The log file generated is names as <Application Date> ie todays log file is named as 20170717.log. Today's log will be truncated at 00:00 (UTC+2) and new log file 20170718.log will be created and old log file will remain in the same directory.

How can I configure NxLog to read the current log only
