about disk buffer


I am using disk buffer. There is limit when using memory or desk ?

I am using nxlog with graylog to forward log. For the disk buffer, the file never gets empty even after the connexion is back between nxlog and graylog?

Output buffering

I am using om_tcp for forwarding Windows logs to a SIEM system. What will be the expected behavior of nxlog if e.g. a firewall blocks the TCP connections from the nxlog agent to the SIEM? Is there any potential danger in nxlog buffering outgoing logs so that large amounts of memory or disk space would be consumed on the sending host while the connections get blocked?
