syslog_tls too many open files

There is a bug in NXLog Community Edition 2.10.2150, with module im_ssl regarding opening CA files.

NXLog seems to create a file descriptor for the CA file each time a new connection is made. That is, NXLog opens the file again and again. If NXLog runs on Linux, this can quickly hit the OS limit of maximum number of files open.

The following error is seen repeatedly once the OS limit of file descriptors is reached:

Simple file transfer using nxlog


I'm new to nxlog. I have recently installed nxlog in my local system and tried to copy nxlog log file which is available in a default location to another location in my machine.
Is this feasible using nxlog?

Not in installed apps and finding out version

Hello :)

I have a friend that is asking why he cant find nxlog on his pc under installed applications, When I run the .msi file I can find it easily. Did his previous security officer install it a different way? (On Windows)

Also how can I see what version of nxlog is currently running? (On Windows)
