Hello Dhamodharan,

Great you want to try NXLog!

Please note, that in order to get any pointers - at least some details are necessary. For instance, what logs you want to collect and to which format you wish to convert them?

Best regards,

    Hi Rafal,

    Thanks for your revert, sorry I missed to update those details.

    I have text logs generating from an application, those text logs i wanted to convert to json format.

    Hi Dhamodharan,

    I assume byt text logs you mean just files. You may want to check the im_file module, which allows using file content as input. For converting to JSON, you may want to check the xm_json module, that brings JSON capabilities to a log workflow. Please not, that the CE options here are a bit limited to those present in NXLog Enterprise Edition - you can check what's inside xm_json module of NXLog Enterprise Edition.

    And I assume you want to ship those logs somewhere - where? Let me know, so I'd be able to point you the direction.

    Good luck,
