Modules im_msvistalog & im_winperfcount "Collecting Logs from multiple Windows Servers"

Hello I wish to collect event logs and Windows performance counters from multiple 'remote' systems within a Windows domain... I would like to know the syntax for doing this.. I have looked at your documentation in relation to your Enterprise version and it states that you can use the module  directives (RemoteServer,RemoteUser,RemotePassword) etc... But there is no statement with regards how you structure the collection from multiple servers or if these commands can be used with the 'im_winperfcount' module..

ERROR Couldn't read next event, corrupted eventlog?; The data is invalid.

As soon as I start nxlog-ce, it writes the error in the title into its logfile and stops processing logs. Nxlog config I am using:


define ROOT C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog

Moduledir %ROOT%\modules
CacheDir %ROOT%\data
Pidfile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.pid
SpoolDir %ROOT%\data
LogFile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.log

<Extension json>
    Module      xm_json

<Input eventlog>
    # Use 'im_mseventlog' for Windows XP and 2003
    Module      im_msvistalog

nxlog community edition on windows10

I am a newbie to logstash and elasticsearch and I am setting up a test system using nxlog on my windows clients.  I have several windows 7 boxes that are successfully sending the eventlogs to the logstash server.  I am trying to setup a nxlog client on a windows 10 box and I keep getting an error from the nxlog service that the eventlog is corrupt.  I have confirmed I have the nxlog.conf file selected for the newer style event log.
