High CPU load on Windows 7


I noticed strange cases nxlog.exe is loading 60%-90% CPU.
Log file has nothings about errors.
I have the same config file for win7 and winXP, but winXP is OK in contrast to win7.
Also if I use om_udp module instead om_tcp in config file for win7 high load is desappear.  

Could anybody say me what is the problem, or how I can get more information about cause of problems.

Get gmt time with IETFTimestampInGMT


I have a question about IETFTimestampInGMT option.

In the documentation - section "Syslog (xm_syslog)" - I can read : "IETFTimestampInGMT This optional boolean directive can be used to format the timestamps produced by to_syslog_ietf() in GMT instead of local time. This defaults to FALSE so that local time is used by default with a timezone indicator"

So here's a part of my nxlog.conf :

<Extension _syslog>

How to filter repetitive events

In case of DOS attack on a device, there would be a surge of logs in a very short time and all the events look simillar with change in one or two parameters source port/destination port/source ip/destination ip. In such case, can we filter such repeatitive logs in NXLOG agent? If yes, How to do that? I tried pm_norepeat but it didnt help. Any other alternate options?
