Limiting amount of logs received daily


I configured my conf file (comm. edition) with a query for certain event id's. The output works, however, is there a way to prevent every event from creating it's own log file? For instance, create 1 large file for the date vs having 200k+ logfiles daily.

How to get access Support Portal and to download newly licensed products

I have just purchased the Enterprise Edition NX Log software as well as BH Support.

Can someone advise how I can get the products added to my subscription as well as access to the software downloads and support portal?
Alternatively, if a vendor support contact can contact me directly that would be great.

Can we avoid to_syslog_ietf to include all fields in forwarded message

Hello everyone,
I'm new to NXLOG and I'm trying to understand how event creation and forwarding work.

I have a question about the parse_json() function or maybe the to_syslog_ietf() function, I'm not sure.
Is it possible to use parse_json($Message) then to_syslog_ietf() to forward $Message without all the fields obtained with parse_json included in the forwarded syslog event?

NXLOG Use Case

HI Everyone,

I'm evaluating various Log centralization / log analysis tools for our enterprise. I've been looking into graylog for some time and have gotten to the point where I'm comfortable in it. I just started to look into NXLOG and I'm wondering which offering to choose.

From what I can see, NXLog is more capable than graylog as far as log collection goes.

How can I protect passwords that are stored in the nxlog config to access different systems. I am using the sql connector with a local sql account and it requires the username and password to be inputed into the config.
