Reading hidden files in Windows?

I can't get NXlog to read hidden files in Windows server 2012 R2. The source files are in this hidden folder: C:\ProgramData\. There are no errors in the log file even if i put the debug mode on. I've double checked the path in input module and it is correct. The NXLog version is 4.4.4347. I also tried to look at Windows logs but no sign of problems there either. Any ideas on what to look next?

Behavior when NXLog CE receives a 400 response using om_http

Scenario: Two inputs are configured. One is incorrect and results in a 400 response from the endpoint defined in om_http. The other input can send events without generating an error.

Observed behavior: NXLog will continue to resend an event that failed which causes a loop condition that prevents any other events from being sent.

Is there a way to change this behavior?

How to handle multiple IIS site on a single server

Hi All,

Is there a better solution to capturing IIS logs across multiple sites on a single server than adding an input per site in nxlog.conf?

ERROR memory pool allocation error; Not enough space

currently running 2.10.2150 on windows with a config that reads a debug DNS log (on c:), parses the logs, drops 99% of the logs, and writes the remainder out with file_write()

we are seeing this memory pool allocation error and looking for info about if it's a known issue, something that we should be changing the config to deal with, or what's happening.

our current config is something very close to (filenames may vary):

Panic Soft
#NoFreeOnExit TRUE

Multiple Microsoft EVT files


I've read a few posts about ingesting multiple .evt files using the im_msvista module. Is there a way to do this?

I can point to one, but I need to look at several.

thank you!
