Schedule remove_file remove non processed file


I use nxlog to send highly critical log (legal log). NXLog is configured to remove file after a specified retention time, to release space from drive.

My configuration works like a charm, but... If I deploy nxlog with this following configuration, nxlog remove all file older than my retention time but before the processing.

ERROR om_tcp detected a connection error;Connection reset by peer

I am attempting to use NXLog in conjunction with Graylog's Sidecar Collector to send data to my Graylog server. I have been able to successfully telnet to my Graylog server through port 5044, so I know it is not a firewall issue, yet I keep getting these errors in my NXLog error log:

2017-11-08 14:37:09 ERROR om_tcp detected a connection error;Connection reset by peer
2017-11-08 14:37:25 ERROR om_tcp detected a connection error;End of file found

Periodically retrieving data from MSSQL on Linux


I have what I think is a fairly straightforward situation. I'm running queries against an MS-SQL server to retrieve data every 5 minutes. The wrinkle is that I am using unixodbc from a ubuntu 16.04 machine with nxlog to do this. I'm able to retrieve all of the data once on a fresh install of nxlog. However, I'm not seeing new data every 5 minutes and I certain there should be more data as our SQL source is continually writing new entries...
