We are proud to announce the latest release of NXLog Enterprise Edition, version 5.9.
This release focuses on bringing you new supported platforms and configuration options.
Read on to find out more about some of these new features.
Added protocols to network packet capture information
Our administrative module (xm_admin) now returns a list of protocols configured in a packet capture (im_pcap) instance when you request server or module information.
This allows you to track, count, and report on the network protocols you are monitoring.
Support for a new event type in the macOS ULS module
We added support for the 0x6004 (SimpleDump) chunk tag to our macOS im_maculs module in addition to the existing tags.
The module will now collect events of type simpledump.
New platform support
You can now install NXLog on Debian GNU/Linux 10 (Buster) and Debian GNU/Linux 11 (Bullseye) ARM64 architecture and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 for IBM Power Systems ppc64le architecture.
Disable the configuration reversion mechanism
We added the option to disable automatic configuration reversion in our administrative module (xm_admin).
Set the ReversionTimeout directive to 0 in the configuration and restart your agents to instantly disable the reversion mechanism.
UDP and TCP modules can reuse ports on Windows
We implemented the ReuseAddr and ExclusiveAddrUse directives for Windows platforms.
As a result, you can choose whether multiple UDP (im_udp) and TCP (im_tcp) input module instances should listen on a port already in use or block them from doing so.
