    I believe the posts for good review are done by the company themselves. I found the product difficult for installing and the documentation provided is not friendly. Although, I only tested this on RHEL6x.,, the benefit, is multi platform. Need better documentation, and it needs to be security compliance.

    There's a lot of people below saying they can't get nxlog to work on windows. I don't know the particulars of their experience, but Windows is a supported platform, and there are volunteers who will help you if you can't get nxlog to work. I've gotten it to run, and configured it for my needs reasonably successfully. Nxlog works, and works well, and is quite powerful. That's more than I can say about syslog-ng or rsyslog (former doesn't work on Windows, the latter lacked features I needed). Plus, nxlog doesn't use anywhere near the resources of logstash, part of the "ELK Stack" for handling logging. I have only a few minor issues with the software itself. One, the documentation needs a lot more detail. Exec blocks can be particularly hard to sort out, but they are a critical way to get nxlog to do what you need. Two, it can be really hard to figure out what's going on in nxlog's processing. Being able to replay a segment of log file and step through processing would help a fair bit, I suspect. Three, there's many minor features that would really help make this a complete system, especially around JSON, date-times, and HTTP. Great work, nxlog team, and thank you for letting the community use your software! I'll have to remember your work for future projects.

    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.

    I'll pay 100 bucks for Azure Table Storage output module.

    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.

    runs very nice and does it's job well. Although, it seems to hang from time to time while writing to SQL Server. Where could one buy / purchase the enterprise edition? (Lots of information on the website, but no link to purchase.

    This is a very good package. I am especially interested in the Enterprise Edition on Windows. It fills a gap missing for Windows Shops. The Enterprise Site is missing the purchase links! How do we purchase?
