NXLog Community Edition update and other goodies

The NXLog Community Edition was first published in 2011 and it started picking up momentum during the years becoming the preferred log collection tool for thousands of users and companies across the globe.

We are happy to announce that a new version of the NXLog Community Edition has been published recently. A lot of users have already noticed that nxlog-ce_2.10.2102 is available for download. Hopefully this news entry should make that more apparent now :).

Shiny new User Guide

The main source of information for users looking to configure NXLog was the NXLog [EE/CE] Reference Manual until recently. The Reference Manual is mostly what it is called: a reference manual. While it does cover what the software is capable of, unfortunately it is hard to use when you are tasked with setting up NXLog for a particular use case.

Announcing NXLog Enterprise Edition v3.0

We are proud to announce the general availability of NXLog Enterprise Edition v3.0 which is a major step forward to enhance the features and reliability of our flagship product. Below is a list of highlights in the new major release.

Multi platform support for Windows Event Forwarding

A new input module (im_wseventing) can be used to collect forwarded events from Windows hosts. The Windows clients can be configured from Group Policy to send Windows EventLog using Windows Event Forwarding. NXLog already supported collecting Windows EventLog remotely in earlier versions over WMI and MSRPC but this new capability is a major step for secure data collection from Windows machines in agentless mode supporting both Kerberos and HTTPS data transfer. Moreover the new im_wseventing module is platform independent and works on GNU/Linux as well whereby a single NXLog server running on GNU/Linux can be used to collect all your event data in the enterprise including Syslog and Windows EventLog.
