Having a reoccurring problem where I get the following error and my output file quits updating for a few minutes then picks back up again. As a side note, I was having a problem with the eventlog because of an entry that was being written that had an object serialized as xml in the message. That is the exclusion in my application log. Since then, the event log has been working flawlessly.
I'm finding sometimes the message "non-active modification on ....<input_filename>".
Could anyone give us explanations about it ?
My nxlog is v2.8.1248 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
I'm trying to foward log events with NXlog to logstash over a SSL connection. Therefore, I generated my own CA certificate and a certificate to be used by logstash for the SSL connection. NXlog is installed on a Ubuntu 14.04 (virtual) machine with the CA certificate added as '/etc/ssl/certs/logstash-ca.crt'.
I tested the connection with
openssl s_client -CAfile /etc/ssl/certs/logstash-ca.cert -connect localhost:5000
and everything works fine (all entered text lines are received by logstash).
However, when I start NXlog with the appropriate om_ssl output configuration it fails with
ERROR SSL certificate verification failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (err: 20)
