WARNING input file does not exist

I was trying to read the DNS log file but was given an error of "WARNING input file does not exist", and it also depends on the directory that the file was in, here were the results. It appears that Windows was restricting the read permissions based on the residing (system?) directories, any idea?

On one server:
C:\Windows\System32\dns\dns.txt - Error
C:\dns.txt - No error
C:\Windows\Temp\dns.txt - No error

Cache on disk works not good

Hi everybody,
To protect the logs from loss, I turned on the recommended settings in client's config:

PersistLogqueue TRUE
SyncLogqueue TRUE
CacheFlushInterval always
CacheSync TRUE

But now I see that parts of log are duplicated much more often than before these setting was enabled.
Why cache in memory works better? In case with cache on disk I hope to see best result.

Thank you so much!

Nxlog handling big number of files


I have an application that logs some API requests and responses. Each request is logged in a different file, as a single line. In the system there are thousands of files, and Nxlog seems to have issues sending the logs to Elasticsearch. It reads the file, I can see im_file_add_file command in logs, but it takes a long time to actually send the message.

How does Nxlog process multiple files in a single directory?
