We are using nxlog to write all our event logs to syslog, but have a need for them to be formatted as CSV instead of the tab delimited it appears to be currently. Is anyone doing this currently and mind sharing their config, or know if a way to process this correctly?

NXlog Input to Track Rotated Log Files

I have an input for some log files, however each restart of the machine the log file is rotated to a new file.

I'm trying to create an input that is able to track the rotated log file. I presume a wildcard can be used in the File: string and that the save position and read from last wouldnt cause NXlog to re read old files?

Below you can see the example file path with the 'X' representing a number that changes each time the active log is rotated.
