IS nxlog available for Centos 8

Hi All,

I recently upgraded a machine (used for evaluating graylog) from CentOS 7 to CentOS 8 and it turns out that nxlog was removed in the process.

Now I can't find it in the CentOS 8 dnf packages.

Is nxlog available for Centos 8? and if so, who can I install it?

Many thanks,

Installer MSI hashes/checksums

Hi there,

I'm just trying to find the Community Edition Windows installer MSI hashes/checksums (MD5, SHA-256 etc.) on your website but I'm struggling.

I also see that the installer itself doesn't have a digital signature.

Can you point me to where the installer hashes are if you have them? I want to be able to verify the integrity of my download before deployment.

Best regards!

nxlog output to Splunk Cloud

I have download an eval copy of nxlog EE, and am trying to send Microsoft DNS logs to my Splunk Cloud instance. I've read thru various documentation, but am getting an error "ERROR SSL certificate verification failed: self signed certificate in certificate chain (err: 19)", which is confusing me, because I am sending this to Splunk Cloud over HEC, which should have proper cert chain, so I'm not sure where it's getting a self-signed cert from.

nxlog wineventlog + kinesis tap service: contention and possible file locks

We are utilizing nxlog win with the im_msvistalog module. Fairly simplified json output file (om_file) with an hourly rotation. AWS Kinesis Tap is configured to read from this file as a source. We continue to experience strange situations where nxlog will appear to be running healthy as a service, but will be writing 0 lines to the output file as if the mswineventlog back end is just not functioning.

Reading hidden files in Windows?

I can't get NXlog to read hidden files in Windows server 2012 R2. The source files are in this hidden folder: C:\ProgramData\. There are no errors in the log file even if i put the debug mode on. I've double checked the path in input module and it is correct. The NXLog version is 4.4.4347. I also tried to look at Windows logs but no sign of problems there either. Any ideas on what to look next?
