Hello All,


I am planning to use nxlog client as syslog agent forwarder to my syslog server on remote location. I have various devices whcih can create 20 -500 Events per seconds. I want to collect all thsoe events on one of the system with nxlog and then forward it to remove server. 


I am looking for system requirement to ensure system is up and running all time with nxlog client in it.

nxlog service failed to start


I installed NXLog Enterprise Edition v3.0.1775 on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard. For about about 5 days, NXLog was running fine on this server.

I needed to reboot the server and now the NXLog service doesn't start. I'm getting an Error 1053:

The nxlog service failed to start due to the following error: 
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Any thoughts on what the cause is?

Thank you in advance.
