Over the past couple weeks we've noticed high CPU usage on the nxlog service of up to 40%, average is around 25%. As a resolution, we have been stopping the nxlog service as well as the sysmon service, then starting them back up, and after about 10 minutes it finally drops back down to the normal cpu usage.

We are using nxlog CE 2.10.2102 - has anyone else seen this issue?

Will updating to the most current version resolve the issue?

I appreciate any feedback/input!

It is worth upgrading to see if it will fix your issue.
It is also worth trimming your config to see which modules are causing the issue.

It would be interesting to see what kind of parsing and transforms you are doing in the config as well.
