NXlog Problem, Windows event logs not preserving event time

I'm noticing something weird with my NXLog endpoints. If I have my NXLog agents pull windows event logs and transfer them over the network it loses the event time somewhere along the way. My current setup looks like this:

Can you run a powershell command within nxlog?

Hi guys, because the event log doesn't subscribe to debug logs and because I have an app that mangles it's entries I was wondering if you can run a powershell command encapsulated in an if.


if $SourceName == "IHateThisApp" \

{ \

$Message = *encapsulated powershell command* ;  }

Of if someone know a way to get the debug info out and parsed into nxlog.

Parsing XML style log


I read the help but still don't understand how to send this log that would like to call impaxauditlog from a windowsbox text file (that is overwritten) to my syslog server. Below are some examples from the log and my current nxlog config setting.

No SSL data sent (om_ssl) from Windows NXlog to Linux ELK


Having an issue with using om_ssl from a Windows NXlog client to a Linux ELK server.

The issue lies with the encryption part, the connection is established on the associated destination SSL port I set but no SSL traffic can be see/captured.

For information here is the logstash config and the NXlog config, I believe the issue lies with the certs.

om_ssl with GELF - GELF over TCP/TLS support

Hello, is there any chance that nxlog supports Output om_ssl with OutputType GELF?
As descriped here https://www.mail-archive.com/nxlog-ce-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg00397.html
currently NXLog only supports GELF via om_udp .

It would be great, because Graylog now (19. February 2015) supports TLS for all standard TCP and AMQP inputs.
