Send from hostname to folder

View thread


Hi all,

NXLOG newbie. I'm trying to inject logs from a specific hostname into a specific folder. For example:

if hostname = x then store log in folder = y

I'm running a very bare-bones set up. I'd like to use the FQDN as the variable for hostname rather than an IP. Current config:

Panic Soft #NoFreeOnExit TRUE

define ROOT C:\Program Files\nxlog define CERTDIR %ROOT%\cert define CONFDIR %ROOT%\conf\nxlog.d define LOGDIR %ROOT%\data

define LOGFILE %LOGDIR%\nxlog.log LogFile %LOGFILE%

Moduledir %ROOT%\modules CacheDir %ROOT%\data Pidfile %ROOT%\data\ SpoolDir %ROOT%\data

# Check the size of our log file hourly, rotate if larger than 5MB
    Every   1 hour
    Exec    if (file_exists('%LOGFILE%') and \
               (file_size('%LOGFILE%') &gt;= 5M)) \
                file_cycle('%LOGFILE%', 8);

# Rotate our log file every week on Sunday at midnight
    When    @weekly
    Exec    if file_exists('%LOGFILE%') file_cycle('%LOGFILE%', 8);

Snare compatible example configuration

Collecting event log

<Input in>

Module im_msvistalog


Converting events to Snare format and sending them out over TCP syslog

<Output out>

Module om_tcp


Port 514

Exec to_syslog_snare();


Connect input 'in' to output 'out'
