Hi all,

According to the documentation found here it indicates that the generic RPM doesn't have all available modules as opposed to the version specific RPM:

The generic RPM above contains all the libraries (such as libpcre and libexpat) 
that are needed by NXLog, the only dependency is libc. 
However, some modules are not available (im_checkpoint, for example). 
The advantage of the generic RPM is that it can be installed on most RPM-based Linux distributions.

Is there documentation for what modules are not available?
Are there any issues for deploying this version that I should know about up front?

Please see the modules by package section in the manual. This will list every module that you should expect in Generic RPM. https://nxlog.co/documentation/nxlog-user-guide/available-modules.html#RPM_Generic

    Follow up:

    If I were to install the RHEL 7 NXLog-CE agent and then copy some of the missing modules into their appropriate file locations, would we be able to utilize them should we need them?

    Thanks Zhengshi!
