Many files sending logs to a Rsyslog server
Hi all,I am currently using Nxlog CE v3.2.2329 in a Virtual Machine Windows 10 21H2 for sending logs to a Rsyslog server using Syslog RFC5424 version.For this configuration, i use im_msvistalog for input and om_tcp with Exec to_syslog_ietf(); command to send them to the rsyslog server.<Input Source_Eventlogs> Module im_msvistalog </Input> <Output Dest_LogServer> Module om_tcp Host 192.168.1.1 Port 514 Exec to_syslog_ietf(); </Output> <Route send> Path Source_Eventlogs => Dest_LogServer </Route>In the rsyslog server i receipt logs using a template who send logs to the right folder and then the right file log$template DynamicFile,"/var/log/rsyslog/%HOSTNAME%/%syslogseverity-text%.log" *.info -?DynamicFileI met a first issue with security logs who where sent to a folder using the IP address. I assumed the issue was due to a failed resolving name and after adding the Nxlog client name to the /etc/hosts file and it solved the first issue.I met a second issue with Eventlogs who create many folder in the rsyslog folder because the logs are sent without hostname.For example i receive logs in a folder name VMICTimeProvider and when i look to the notice.log file i can see that there is no hostnamecat VMICTimeProvider/notice.log 2023-07-22T09:18:39.022270+00:00. VMICTimeProvider (Local) 2023-07-23T09:40:51.040169+00:00. VMICTimeProvider (Local) 2023-07-24T08:03:51.264202+00:00. VMICTimeProvider (Local) i tried to correct the receipt in the rsyslog side with receipt conditions like if $fromhost-ip=='1.2.3.4' then { actions } . -?WindowsLogs $template WindowsLogs,"/var/log/rsyslog/Windows/Windows/log" But I have to do a line for any Windows collection in the file, and i think if i want to transfert the logs to another file server i will have the logs lines with missing hostname and i will met the same problem. Thank you for your help. Kind regards. Adrien

nxlog embedding carriage returns and newlines in IETF syslog
Hello, I am using nxlog-ce 3.2.2329 on a Windows 10 system to forward logs to a syslog-ng server over TCP using the to_syslog_ietf() procedure. This is working well for most logs, but I am occasionally seeing logs being generated with carriage returns and newlines in the syslog structured data element. Here is an example captured from tcpdump. Note that this is just the beginning of the message, enough to show you where the cr lf's are in the PrivilegeList element:<14>1 2023-10-18T16:23:21.669254-04:00 SteveAcer Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing 952 - [NXLOG@14506 Keywords="-9214364837600034816" EventType="AUDIT_SUCCESS" EventID="4672" ProviderGuid="{54849625-5478-4994-A5BA-3E3B0328C30D}" Version="0" Task="12548" OpcodeValue="0" RecordNumber="2053808" ActivityID="{FE9334EF-0152-0002-AD35-93FE5201DA01}" ThreadID="30200" Channel="Security" Category="Special Logon" Opcode="Info" SubjectUserSid="S-1-5-18" SubjectUserName="SYSTEM" SubjectDomainName="NT AUTHORITY" SubjectLogonId="0x3e7" PrivilegeList="SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege SeTcbPrivilege SeSecurityPrivilege SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege SeDelegateSessionUserImpersonatePrivilege" EventReceivedTime="2023-10-18 16:23:23"The body of the message has cr lf's converted to spaces. In the documentation, I see reference to a ReplaceLineBreaks directive that defaults to converting the cr lfs to spaces, but that doesn't appear to apply to the syslog structured data. Is there a way I can remove these cr lfs from the PrivilegeList, or any element? My nxlog.conf is below:<Input eventlog> Module im_msvistalog </Input> <Output tcp> Module om_tcp Host 172.16.200.1 Exec to_syslog_ietf(); Port 514 </Output> <Route 1> Path eventlog => tcp </Route>Thanks,Steve

configuring integration of SentinelOne to NXLog via SSL/TLS
Hi we wanted to send logs coming from SentinelOne to Google Chronicle using SSL/TLS NXlog. We are just using the Community Edition and based on the documentation SSL/TLS is supported for CE. But we are not sure if this is going to work or how to configure the “CAFile", “CertFile”, “CertKeyFile” thing for this to work or how do we install it? Is it free or paid? Please check the configuration we wanted to implement below. <Input ssl> Module im_ssl Host localhost Port 6514 CAFile %CERTDIR%/ca.pem CertFile %CERTDIR%/client-cert.pem CertKeyFile %CERTDIR%/client-key.pem KeyPass secret InputType Syslog_TLS Exec parse_syslog_ietf(); </Input>

Looking for solution for x86 Windows 10
Hello,i have the problem, that i need to save eventlogs from 32Bit Windows 10 machine to a central logging solution (Graylog 5.1). This works great with x64 Windows 10 systems, but i don‘t find a solution with nxlog and 32Bit systems. Are there any previous versions available with x86 support or do i need to look for an other product? Thanks in advance!

Need help understanding the use of the buffer module in the TCP module of NXLog Community Edition
Dear Team, Issue :I'm trying to use NXLog Community Edition to send logs to Kiwi Syslog. I'm using the TCP connection method. I noticed that when I disconnect the destination for some period of time, after turning it back up after some hours, I can still see the logs that were generated during the destination downtime. This is happening even without the buffer module.I'm wondering what the use of the buffer module in the TCP module is. Is it necessary to use the buffer module to ensure that all logs are sent to the destination, even if the destination is temporarily unavailable?2. From the below configuration file, if we use a memory and disk-based buffer, how will the logs be allocated? And if it creates a buffer logs.q file, what is the maximum size of each file? =========================Configuration:## Please set the ROOT to your nxlog installation directory#define ROOT C:\Program Files\nxlogdefine ROOT C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlogModuledir %ROOT%\modulesCacheDir %ROOT%\dataPidfile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.pidSpoolDir %ROOT%\dataLogFile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.log<Extension syslog> Module xm_syslog</Extension><Input generate_data>   Module      im_testgen   #Maxcount 100   Exec        to_syslog_bsd();</Input># Monitor Windows event logs#<Input eventlog>#  Module im_msvistalog#</Input><Processor buffer>  Module      pm_buffer   #10 MB buffer   MaxSize  10000   Type   Disk MEM   #warn at 5MB  WarnLimit   5000</Processor><Output logs_output>   Module  om_file   File    "C:\Users\test\output_logs.log"</Output><Output tcp> Module om_tcp Host 192.168.x.x Port 1514</Output><Route 1> Path generate_data => buffer => logs_output => tcp</Route> (for testing I'm using test gen module)provide environment descriptionwindows 10 IOT EnterpriseVersionNxlog community latest version

hello everyone,I am configuring nxlog to send IIS logs to Graylog.I managed to configure everything correctly but I would like to make the logs more readable on Graylog.I currently display them like this:would it be possible to somehow get the login name and ip of the user who logged in out of the “message” field?my  current nxlog configuration is this: Panic Soft #NoFreeOnExit TRUE define ROOT C:\Program Files\nxlog define CERTDIR %ROOT%\cert define CONFDIR %ROOT%\conf\nxlog.d define LOGDIR %ROOT%\data include %CONFDIR%\*.conf define LOGFILE %LOGDIR%\nxlog.log LogFile %LOGFILE% Moduledir %ROOT%\modules CacheDir %ROOT%\data Pidfile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.pid SpoolDir %ROOT%\data <Extension _syslog> Module xm_syslog </Extension> <Extension _charconv> Module xm_charconv AutodetectCharsets iso8859-2, utf-8, utf-16, utf-32 </Extension> <Extension _exec> Module xm_exec </Extension> <Extension _fileop> Module xm_fileop # Check the size of our log file hourly, rotate if larger than 5MB &lt;Schedule&gt; Every 1 hour Exec if (file_exists('%LOGFILE%') and \ (file_size('%LOGFILE%') &gt;= 5M)) \ file_cycle('%LOGFILE%', 8); &lt;/Schedule&gt; # Rotate our log file every week on Sunday at midnight &lt;Schedule&gt; When @weekly Exec if file_exists('%LOGFILE%') file_cycle('%LOGFILE%', 8); &lt;/Schedule&gt; </Extension> <Extension _gelf> Module xm_gelf </Extension> <Extension _json> Module xm_json </Extension> ####################################################################### IIS NXLOG ####################################################################### <Extension w3c> Module xm_csv Fields $date, $time, $s_ip, $cs_method, $cs_uri_stem, $cs_uri_query, $s_port, $cs_username, $c_ip, $cs_User_Agent, $cs_Referer, $sc_status, $sc_substatus, $sc_win32_status, $time_taken FieldTypes string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string, string Delimiter ' ' QuoteChar '"' EscapeControl FALSE UndefValue - </Extension> <Input iis> Module im_file File "C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC*\u_ex*" SavePos TRUE Exec $ShortMessage = $raw_event; Exec if $raw_event =~/^#/ drop();\ else\ {\ w3c-&gt;parse_csv();\ $EventTime = parsedate($date + " " + $time);\ $EventTime = parsedate($date + " " + $time + "Z");\ $SourceName = "IIS";\ $raw_event = to_json();\ } </Input> ####################################################################### /IIS NXLOG ####################################################################### Snare compatible example configuration Collecting event log <Input in> Module im_msvistalog </Input> Converting events to Snare format and sending them out over TCP syslog <Output out> Module om_tcp Host ha-centlog-vip.xxxxxxxx Port 12201 Exec to_json(); OutputType GELF_TCP Exec $Hostname = hostname_fqdn(); Exec $raw_event =$Hostname + ' IIS-NXLOG ' + $raw_event; #Use the following line for debugging (uncomment the fileop extension above as well) #Exec file_write("C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\data\nxlog_output.log", $raw_event); </Output> <Route iis-to-graylog> Path iis => out </Route> Connect input 'in' to output 'out' <Route 1> Path in => outThanks

Unable to add additional exec statements
We have the following filter applied to our ms_vistalog_filtered.conf, which is working:  Exec if $EventID NOT IN (%MonitoredEventIds%) drop(); <Exec> $Hostname = hostname_fqdn(); to_json(); </Exec> If I attempt to add anything to this filter, logs stop coming in entirely.  I have tried using a single block, multiple exec commands, and multiple exec blocks.  I ultimately I need to filter out EventID 4663 for some of our noisy applications.  My single block filter looks like this: <Exec> if ($EventID NOT IN (%MonitoredEventIds%) or (($EventID == 4663) and ($raw_event =~ /c:\\\\program\sfiles\\\\java\\\\jre1\.8\.0_92\\\\bin\\\\java\.exe/i or $raw_event =~ /c:\\\\programdata\\\\oracle\\\\java\\\\javapath_target_185880968\\\\java\.exe/i or $raw_event =~ /c:\\\\program\sfiles\\\\java\\\\jdk1\.8\.0_92\\\\bin\\\\java\.exe/i or $raw_event =~ /d:\\\\java\\\\jdk1\.8\.0_181\\\\jre\\\\bin\\\\java\.exe/i or $raw_event =~ /c:\\\\program\sfiles\\\\git\\\\mingw64\\\\bin\\\\git\.exe/i or $raw_event =~ /c:\\\\programdata\\\\oracle\\\\java\\\\javapath_target_1471633062\\\\java\.exe/i or $raw_event =~ /c:\\\\windows\\\\system32\\\\netstat\.exe/i)) ) drop(); $Hostname = hostname_fqdn(); to_json(); </Exec>I have also tried something as simple as: Exec if $EventID NOT IN (%MonitoredEventIds%) drop(); Exec if $raw_event =~ /c:\\windows\\system32\\netstat.exe/i drop(); <Exec> $Hostname = hostname_fqdn(); to_json(); </Exec> There are many other iterations, but these I think illustrate the simplest filters we've tried.  Any change to the filter and restart of nxlog service results in all logs being dropped. not just eid 4663.  Is there something wrong in my syntax or some other issue I am missing?

NXLog - read logs from a local .csv file on Windows Server
Hi!I would like to have some help with my NXLog confiugration. I dont get any errors or so but in the SIEM I don't receive any logs at all from the source. So I'm guessing that there Is some issues reading logs from the .csv file. Or It could be something else. So my purpose with this Is to ship logs in a local .csv file to a SIEM. My thought was that NXLog should be a great solutions with this due to all extensions and so on. My NXLog configuration file Is based on these modules,xm_csvxm_syslogxm_jsonim_file (pointing out the local .csv file)out_ssl (for shipping logs through tls encryption)Been following along with this guide, Delimiter-Separated Values (xm_csv) | NXLog DocsHas anyone done this before? Thanks
