NXLog Community Edition version 3.0 Release Announcement

We have published an updated version of NXLog Community Edition.

The release contains new modules for collecting logs from Linux system journals and named pipes. It also lifts the 256 source limitation in Windows Event Log collection and fixes a security issue in the file output modules. In addition, many other modules received various updates.

This new release includes modules to support integration with the Perl programming language, allowing you to create your own input, output, or extension modules in Perl and run them in NXLog Community Edition. Python integration modules for Linux have also been included. Windows support for Python is planned to come in the next release.

NXLog Community Edition can now directly ship logs to the Raijin database via om_raijin. See here for more information about Raijin, the schemaless SQL database.

The product is available through our download pages and docker hub.

The sources are published here.
