Using NXLog to monitor multiple files and send to Graylog

I've been using NXLog to monitor a simple log file from an application and send it to Graylog using GELF. Very simple, very efficient, and it works just like I want it to. Now I want to monitor a 2nd log file from another application and send that to a separate input in Graylog (also using GELF). I thought it would be quick and simple to add the 2nd log file as another om_file imput and add a 2nd output to route the log file to.

Hi all,

I'm trying to integrate the Exchange Logs to NXLog CE using the example config from https://nxlog.co/documentation/nxlog-user-guide/exchange.html which does'nt work. After reading through the forums I have come up with the following nxlog.conf which still doesn't work producing the errors at the end of this post. Is there any comprehensive guide to setup it up?
