Route path branching


please advise me how to configure the following setup:

  • several inputs (UDP, TCP, internal) joined into common path (i_udp, i_tcp, i_internal => p_pattern ...),
  • one global processor (pattern, filter)  module,
  • several outputs (file, UDP, TCP),
  • every message is delivered to one of outputs according to processor's decision.

I call it "route branching". The solutions I have come to so far:

Source code of community edition for community


will you, please, publish recent source code, the one the latest CE packages were built from? I made quite a few tests with 2.9.1504 on Debian and now would like to patch some minor problems of pm_pattern (and contributing back), but last published sources are 2.8.1248. And I can not get a changelog between theese two versions either (the changelog packaged in the binary package, as mentioned in the previous post, is too brief):

Gelf - TCP doesn't work with comunity edition

Hi all,

I tried to use the gelf extension with the tcp module, but it doesn't work.
I saw tht the commercial version includes a special tcp gelf enxtension. Supports the community edition the usage of GELF over TCP?

Kind regards

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

nxlog was sending to nagios log server just fine for a few days and then all of a sudden we started seeing the below errors in the nxlog.log file that are preventing logs from being sent.

ERROR om_tcp send failed; An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

ERROR couldn't connect to tcp socket on xx.xx.xxx.xx:3515; No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
