im_dbi & MS SQL

Hello Team,

I'm looking to use nxlog to retrieve a table entries from MS SQL , To be clear I do not require any of the database server logging only the info contained within a few tables within a database on the server.

I have followed the setup and battled first under windows and then linux versions of nxlog. I am now trying to use libdbi-freetds without success after having out of memory upon using the mysql hooks.

However, these large entries seem to hang nxlog so that it stops processing new entries. Typical error messages are:

IIS log & bad characters causes NXlog crash causing random event dump

We are using NXlog to send Windows EventLogs and IIS logs to Logstash (ELK).  It works very well indeed with only one problem - at 2am (we suspect IIS log rotation, or maybe weird Netscaler packet) every day the NXlog service crashes on ALL servers that are sending IIS logs.  We have some other servers only sending EventLogs - no crashing occurs.
