Performance statistics/measurements of nxLog on Windows

Are there any numbers about how nxLog performs when it is processing a high rate of messages being placed into a log file?

Right now we have a couple of incidents which resulted in a few thousand messages being logged per second.

I assume this is more than nxLog can handle but am wondering about any performance testing that has been run

where to find im_dbi?


I need to use im_dbi import module of nxlog.

This module isn't part of actual setup, so where can I get it?

Centralizing logs

Hello, I'm having trouble centralize logs because my storage system performs poorly.

I have several nxlog-ce agents sending logs with om_tcp module and server I have a nxlog-ce recording these logs with the module om_file in a shared directory on my NAS.

What recommendation for improving the performance of my solution as a whole? Use another distributed file system? Using an unstructured database? Exsitem more options?

Remove duplicates in text file

I'm using NXLog to read a log file and send it to Logstash.  This works fine, but some of the log lines are duplicates.  They're in separate lines, but the content is exactly the same.  I can't change the way the logs are written to the log file, so the only way is to fix it either with NXLog before it gets send, or in Logstash when it arrives, which I prefer not to do.

I see NXLog does have a function for this, but it's not working for me.  I've tried this in my config file.
