im_udp on Windows
Hello I try to use nxlog-ce to collect the log of an aruba controller The log file is well created, but it remains empty Could you help me ?
for information : the aruba controller is correctly configured since I get the logs well with the software "visual syslog server"
here is the nxlog.conf file used
define ROOT C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog
Moduledir %ROOT%\modules CacheDir %ROOT%\data Pidfile C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\nxlog.pid SpoolDir C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\data LogFile C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\nxlog.log
<Extension fileop> Module xm_fileop </Extension>
<Extension syslog> Module xm_syslog </Extension>
<Input in> Module im_udp Host IP Adress of my Windows serveur Port 514 </Input>
<Output out> Module om_file File 'D:\arubasyslogs\aruba.log' </Output>
<Route 1> Path in_Aruba => out_file </Route>
See the Troubleshooting section in the user guide and make sure that the UDP packets actually reach the server. Can be confirmed with wrireshark or similar.
