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:

Nxlog not handling winevent TimeCreated

I'm using NXlog to ship windows event logs to an ELK stack.  I need to preserve the datetime when the event happened <TimeCreated SystemTime=> that is stored in the event log.

Issues with data upload to ElasticSearch

Hello everyone,

This is my first time posting in this community forum, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been working with NxLog and ElasticSearch for a few months now and I've had mostly no issues with it until very recently, where a new ElasticSearch index was created in order to accomodate the new structure of our logs. With that, we also had to update our existing nxlog.conf file.
