nxlog windows XP - service restart

S.O. -> windows XP

Question about dropping syslog messages before they are sent


I think this is an easy answer, but I am having some issues.  I am trying to read in a log file and send out a syslog message.  If the line in the file contains the word error, I want a syslog message to be sent.  If the file does not contain that word, just drop the message.  What would be the proper way to do this?  Below is what I currently have.

Data size is over the limit


I am trying to read multiline xml files (results of ELMAH logs in ASP.NET), but for some of them I am unable to do so, as they contain lots of information. This results in errors like this:

2015-09-02 08:50:50 ERROR data size (119671) is over the limit (65000), will be truncated

I tried googling for a resolution to this problem, but I couldn't find any information anywhere about a data size limit in nxlog. Could some please advise what I could do to fix this?
