Below is a configuration that can be used for a start. Make sure to set the value of CUSTOMER_TOKEN properly. If you are unsure where to get this, see the article about the cusomer token in the Loggly support center.

The new release brings a WTMP parser

The new release, 2.7.1189 brings a WTMP parser module and a dozen other fixes and enhancements. The following is an excerpt from the changelog:
The LICENSE has changed.
Added a new extension module to parse binary wtmp files on Linux.
Fixed a regression causing a crash after the 'failed to determine FQDN hostname' error message.
The to_syslog_*() procedures can now use $raw_event if $Message is unset to make it easier to convert to syslog.
Added a fix to im_msvistalog to handle the "EvtNext failed with error 13: The data is invalid." error better.
The im_file module now emits the last event when using with the xm_multiline extension.

Several stabilization fixes are available in 2.6.1131

The detailed changes are as follows:
Service control manager could not properly shut down the service on windows2003 and possibly other windows versions. This could have resulted in unsaved positions and duplicated log collection on system restart.
Fixed a panic in nx_config_cache_write() during shutdown.
Fixed an assertion failure when pm_pattern was trying to set an invalid datetime field.
The installer adds 'eventlog' as a dependency for the nxlog service.
Some error conditions (e.g. The interface is unknown, Access is denied, Invalid parameter, etc) should be handled better now by im_mseventlog.
