I've been searching this forum and the web, but can't find if there is a way to make nxlog include its version in the syslogs it forwards out

Assistance required in log file ingestion


We have a following log file from open source password manager solution. It runs on tomcat. We have graylog server where we would like to send the log data and parse it. Now, we can send the log file to graylog however the entire line comes as one message block, instead of parsing into fields automatically. I am wondering how can i convert the file into csv and send to graylog.

Here is sample log. It doesn't come with any header.

NXlog just read access the logfile, or .... ? [Win2012]

Hi all,

I've set up nxlog (4.1.4016) to monitor a logfile that is been written to constantly.
For some reason, when i start nxlog, the programm that creates the loglines no longer adds info to the existing log.
A simple commandline 'echo logline >> thelog.txt' does add the line to the logfile (and processed by nxlog), but other logging is not added.
As soon as I stop the NXLog service, the log is modified again.
