NXLOG USER GUIDE UPDATES

We have launched our new NXLog User Guide which is now available in multiple page formats. This change was made to provide a better reader experience for our users navigating the web browser-based documentation. We hope that you enjoy this improvement and your feedback is welcome.

You can go through the new User Guide here.

Docker now officially a supported platform.

NXLog is pleased to announce that Docker is now officially a supported platform.

Docker is a containerization technology that enables the creation and use of Linux containers. These containers allow developers to package an application with all of its dependencies and distribute it as a single package.

Our User Guide has the information that you need to install, configure and deploy centralized log collection in Docker.

NXLog log collection suite now available on Microsoft Windows Nano Server

We are pleased to announce that Microsoft Windows Nano Server is now supported as a deployment option for our log collection suite.

Nano Server is a remotely administered server operating system that is optimized for private clouds and datacenters. In comparison to Windows Server, it is smaller, has no local logon capability, takes up far less disk space, sets up significantly faster, and requires far fewer updates and restarts than Windows Server. Read more on how you can implement log collection on Microsoft Windows Nano at the Deploy Nano section of the User Guide.

Buffering and Flow Control

Buffering is an important area to have a practical understanding of in log collection.

Proper management of buffering behaviors does not have to be overly complex once armed with the right knowledge of controlling options like log queues and flow control. We have added further improvements to the NXLog User Guide on the topic of buffering and flow control. There is now a more extensive introduction covering four types of NXLog buffering (read/write, log queue, pm_buffer, and flow control), complete with examples.

You can find information using Buffers page.

Product Life Cycle

You will now find that product life cycle information is included in the NXLog User Guide.

This information will help you plan, in advance, you own environments while informed of the life cycle of certain NXLog product versions.
