Windows Collector GPO

Has anyone gotten nxlog running on linux to receive windows logs through Windows Log Collector initiated by a GPO? In simple terms, using nxlog to receive Windows logs without a nxlog agent running on Windows? If so, any documentation on how to make that happen?

Thank you in advance, Bruce M. Wink

Updated source package of Community Edition (2.9 instead of 2.8)


I have noticed the on the download page of NXLog Community Edition the versions of the Windows and Linux packages are 2.9 while the source code (.tar.gz) is of the lower version 2.8.

Could the source code package please be updated?

We are missing the GELF_TCP feature which appeared in 2.9.1347.

Thank you

Rotate log based on size and schedule using variables in path and filename

Hi all,
I can...
 - rotate log files based on size.
 - rotate log files based on size using event fields- such as $Hostname from Syslog
 - rotate log files based on size and schedule.
I CANNOT rotate log files based on size and schedule using event fields !  It seems that the Schedule component does not like references to fields.

256 sources limit

Back to conversation about current workaround... Windows Server 2016 has more than 256 channels. Is it possible to create a second thread/instance to subscribe for the remaining channels? I can try to guess and create XML filter to exclude some unneeded for now but tomorrow MS can create more channels with some update and would be nice if it handled automatically.
