Write data/logs to file using source HOSTNAME
I have been working on setting up an intermediary SYSLOG Server to receive syslog events from various network devices as part of my Splunk deployment.
Please NOTE: This a WINDOWS 2019 Server environment.
I am a newbie to NXLog . I have been able to get a base configuration working to receive data on port 514. I can successfully write to a file but the only option that seems to work is to write to file using the source IP Address, but I want to write to a file using the source Hostname.
I am using the Community Edition and do not have access to use xm_resolver.
How can I receive syslog data and write that data to file using source HOSTNAME?
I have been researching and trying now for close to a month with no success. Any information / guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time. Regards, --Diane Proscino
Maybe what you need is...
string hostname() Return the hostname (short form). string hostname_fqdn() Return the FQDN hostname. This function will return the short form if the FQDN hostname cannot be determined.
Can you please paste here the config you are using?
