The NXLog Enterprise Edition log collection suite provides both agent-based and agentless collection modes. Administrators can collect data from common system logs and log formats including Syslog, Windows Event Log, file-based logs and databases. In addition, specialized APIs and SDKs allow for remote collection providing there is integration support from NXLog. The mode of log collection, whether it is agent-based or agentless, is flexible and open to change over time depending on individual factors and requirements of a log collection deployment strategy. With NXLog, administrators have the choice of either agent-based, agentless or a combination of both modes to suit whichever requirements is needed to fulfil.
