Whitepaper: Windows Event Forwarding

Making the Most of Windows Event Forwarding for Centralized Log Collection. 

Windows Event Forwarding (WEF) provides log centralization capabilities that are natively supported in Windows-based systems. This post covers the advantages of using Windows Event Forwarding and its limitations. However, don’t let these limitations set you back from making the most of WEF when you use a log collection solution such as NXLog. Click here to read the full article.

Use NXLog to collect and forward logs to Splunk

The Splunk Universal Event Forwarder for Windows cannot collect ETW data. Other solutions can be used such as the NXLog im_etw module as shown in this video.

We show a demonstration on how you can use NXLog ETW input module to collect and forward Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) data, write it in JSON structured data format, and forward to Splunk.

Use NXLog to collect other types of data on Windows and Linux platforms - from Windows EventLog to file-based log collection, file integrity monitoring and more.
