Hi Team,

Hope all are well.

I am new to nxlog and trying to plan for an upgrade from vUpgrade from nxlog-ce-2.9 to latest 5.x.

Can someone please help us in below queries.

1) Can we upgrade to the latest version
2) IS upgrading to latest version is recomended?
3) can we directly upgrade it or its a multihop upgrade from v3.x -> 4.x -> 5.x
4) is there any link to go through the upgrade process in windows environment?

Thanks in advance and any info would be helpfull

Hi Anjan,

Great choice!

Let me answer your questions:

  1. Yes, you can! However, keep in mind that CE 2.9, which (as I understand) you use right know, is a free, community-driven product. The lates 5.x version refer to the NXLog Enterprise Edition, which is enterprise-grade software, and require getting a license(s).
  2. Yes, it is recommended. Thanks to the lifecycle of Enterprise Edition, it's always up-to-date, it brings a lot of optimizations, and also with more functionalities. It can also get support from our Support Team, as well as Professional Services, helping in more specific optimizations.
  3. You should be able to directly skip versions, but two remarks: a) please, backup your conifgs, b) be aware that there might be some subtle differences, but nothing that won't be solvable.
  4. Sure, take a look at our docs: https://nxlog.co/documentation/nxlog-user-guide/deploy-windows.html#upgrade_windows

Best regards,
