NXLOG Multiline issue with logstash: Windows 7 x64 VM

Hi

 

I am attempting to create a proof of concept for visualising log files by leveraging nxlog -> logstash -> elasticsearch -> kibana. I am having issues at the stage of filling up logtstash with information from a text log file using nxlog and in particluar the multiline portions of the log file.

I am using a Windows 7 x64 VM as a test machine with all the services and applications localised to this VM.

Platform: Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, running Exchange, 64 bit, virtualized on vmware ESX

Nxlog fails to start, creates an appcrash log entry citing msvcrt.dll. The three application event log details can be seen here in this export of the event log: http://hpu.bitcore.org/nxlogcrash.evtx

In nxlog's local log file, these entries can be seen:

nxlog doesn't use system proxy settings

Hello,

I am running nxlog 2.8.1248 on Windows Server 2008 R2.  This system is behing a proxy, other internet traffic outbound works from the server, but nxlog cannot connect to outside resources. Is there a way to specifcy proxy settings for nxlog? Can it be set to use Windows proxy settings as defined in "Internet Options"? I am using the connect over SSL option (Module om_ssl).

Logging to nxlog from Python

Hello, I was directed here by https://www.loggly.com/.

I have a Python application that loggs to syslog using Python's SyslogHandler

hdlr = SysLogHandler(address='/var/run/syslog')
logger = logging.getLogger()
logger.addHandler(hdlr)

This works without any configuration of syslog.

Is there a nxlog equivalent?

Issue with nxlog Windows service

Hello,

It seems that there is some kind of conflict or bug in nxlog-ce-2.8.1248 (I'm not sure about earlier versions) where, upon boot, nxlog gets stuck in a loop initiating connections to a remote machine (Logstash in my case using om_tcp).

I only became aware of this after installing nxlog on server that had the group policy "Audit Filtering Platform Connection" enabled on successful connections; this actually generated so many events that it filled up my elasticsearch cluster (I've attached a sample of the event the filled the cluster).
