Description

NXLog is a modular, multi-threaded, high-performance log management solution with multi-platform support. In concept it is similar to syslog-ng or rsyslog but is not limited to unix/syslog only. It can collect logs from files in various formats, receive logs from the network remotely over UDP, TCP or TLS/SSL . It supports platform specific sources such as the Windows Eventlog, Linux kernel logs, Android logs, local syslog etc. Writing and reading logs to/from databases is also supported. The collected logs can be stored into files, databases or forwarded to a remote log server using various protocols. The old BSD Syslog and the newer IETF syslog standard is fully supported by NXLog in addition to Snare, XML, JSON, GELF, KVP, CSV and custom formats. A key concept in NXLog is to be able to handle and preserve structured logs. No need to convert everything to syslog and parse these logs again at the other side. It has powerful message filtering, log rewrite and conversion capabilities.

    Nothing works correctly for WIndows. All but the simplest things work. Examples in the docs hardly work. After a few days of very frustrating investigation it is clear that this framework is a complete POS.

    Wasted hours trying to get this POS to work on Windows. It doesn't. Hit the forums, not a single error same as mine. Tried to use their sample inputs AND outputs based on the online docs, those didn't work, even hit the IRC Chat room. Nothing in there but crickets. Huge waste of time. I'll just use Kiwi. Thanks for absolutely nothing. Your software is garbage.
