NXlog Implementation

Hi all! Im new and would really appreciate any assistance/feedback on implementation... I'm trying to implement Audit Reduction in my environment which includes (4) Windows 7 boxes , (2) RHEL 7 boxes (SYSLOG) and (1) RHEL 6 box (SYSLOG)... We have all the logs writing to one of the Windows 7 workstations. The logs need to be manually pulled off and put in another location.

How to delete input files after reading ?

Hi Everyone,
New forum user, so sorry if I do not respect some uses rules…and I’m French by the way, so sorry about my bad English level too…;-)
I use Nxlog in the following context :
A machine A send periodically a file on a machine B (same file name)
Machine B is used like a first level of log centralization. Nxlog is installed on it
Then, Nxlog send log to Machine C who host Logstash

Mimic rsyslog output on Ubuntu

Using nxlog in front of logstash on a server.  On the same user, I want to use nxlog to replace rsyslog.  Seems pretty simple.  The only issue is the file format is slightly different than the what rsyslog outputs.  I see:
