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.

Windows Event Forwarding

I would like to forward Windows Security Events into Azure's Log Analytics using NXLog instead of the Microsoft Monitoring Agent (MMA).
Does anyone been able to do this? If so, would you care to share your config file setup?
