• NXLog - Such an awesome little free tool that will push windows events to your log aggregator in a variety of formats. Can even read in from files and push contents out. https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/8a9xzt/everyone_loves_to_bitch_about_printers_dns/dwx4em9/

  • So overall, NxLog is amazing. It allows you to take the load off of your central syslog cluster and distribute it across all of your endpoints that are generating logs. This also decreases the amount and size of events coming into your cluster from the start so you are only getting exactly the items that you need.

  • If Snare’s your butter knife, nxlog is your Swiss Army Knife. With multi-platform support and a gigantor feature list, nxlog is likely to be your next step when you run into some of the limitations of Snare and other simple forwarders. Capturing data from more locations than event logs? Check! Secure transport? Of course! Without question there’s more of a learning curve, but for most organizations serious about log collection on windows (and other platforms!), it’s well worth the time investment. https://opsbot.com/windows-first-class-centralized-logging-citizen/

  • On Linux systems, there are many options for converting arbitrary logfiles into syslog. For Microsoft Windows, there are reasonable free options for converting Eventlogs to Syslog, such as SNARE. There are excellent, but expensive tools like Splunk for parsing any sort of data you like. But I really struggled to find anything that could run on Microsoft Windows, convert a custom logfile to syslog, and send it to two destinations simultaneously. After much fruitless searching, and more than a few dead-ends, I found the answer: nxlog. http://lkhill.com/nxlog-convert-to-syslog/

  • I really do have to give you credit for the flexibility and coding style used in nxlog, it really is very very well done.

  • nxlog is a lot leaner and does a great job pulling Windows Event Log data and forwarding it to Logstash using JSON or GELF. Its configuration syntax is also a lot more robust and full-featured than Logstash's, so you might find it easier to do complex things with your event logs before you forward them, like filtering out noisy logs before they ever get to the server.

  • We follow the market and in our world, nxlog is the hands-down best solution we see for our Windows users.

  • Have already spent lots of time testing other opensource tools, but none suited so far, only nxlog has helped this far that too with less memory, CPU and IO :)

  • nxlog is a GREAT application, and it has countless uses in my development test environment. Glad I ran across it!

  • I wanted to pop in and say how impressed I am with nxlog. I really like the architecture and philosophy on how it is compartmentalized and tries to maintain structured data throughout the transaction. That makes perfect sense.

  • Nxlog-ce is for me the best Windows logs parser, low memory footprint , low cpu.
