Anyone using NXLog to send WIndows Events to Azure's Log Analytics

Is Anyone using NXLog to send Windows Events to Azure's Log Analytics, replacing Microsoft's OMS\MMA agent?
The MS MMA agent is very limited on its outbound filtering, so NXLog is being considered.
If someone is successful doing this, a example of the config file would be awesome.

Limiting amount of logs received daily


I configured my conf file (comm. edition) with a query for certain event id's. The output works, however, is there a way to prevent every event from creating it's own log file? For instance, create 1 large file for the date vs having 200k+ logfiles daily.

How to get access Support Portal and to download newly licensed products

I have just purchased the Enterprise Edition NX Log software as well as BH Support.

Can someone advise how I can get the products added to my subscription as well as access to the software downloads and support portal?
Alternatively, if a vendor support contact can contact me directly that would be great.

Can we avoid to_syslog_ietf to include all fields in forwarded message

Hello everyone,
I'm new to NXLOG and I'm trying to understand how event creation and forwarding work.

I have a question about the parse_json() function or maybe the to_syslog_ietf() function, I'm not sure.
Is it possible to use parse_json($Message) then to_syslog_ietf() to forward $Message without all the fields obtained with parse_json included in the forwarded syslog event?

NXLOG Use Case

HI Everyone,

I'm evaluating various Log centralization / log analysis tools for our enterprise. I've been looking into graylog for some time and have gotten to the point where I'm comfortable in it. I just started to look into NXLOG and I'm wondering which offering to choose.

From what I can see, NXLog is more capable than graylog as far as log collection goes.
