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.

Issues with data upload to ElasticSearch

Hello everyone,

This is my first time posting in this community forum, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been working with NxLog and ElasticSearch for a few months now and I've had mostly no issues with it until very recently, where a new ElasticSearch index was created in order to accomodate the new structure of our logs. With that, we also had to update our existing nxlog.conf file.

Order messages from Windows Event Log with nxlog-elasticsearch-Kibana


I'm using nxlog to send logs from Windows eventlog to elasticsearch, and using Kibana view.

I'm getting all the message as it is in the 'Message' column, I want to re-order it so the hostname parameter will be the windows server (and not the elasticsearch server), add 'Type' to the messages, etc.

this is the configuration file of nxlog:

* server

<Extension json>
 Module xm_json
