Centralized log collection with NXLog

What are logs for?

People outside the security industry probably would answer this question: "To fill up disk space". Partly true, logging can be a point of failure in the system if the log files are not properly rotated and managed.

On the security side, logs are a crucial part of our world’s IT systems. For example, how would we know who accessed our e-mail account and when? This would be impossible to answer without logging data about these events.
