NetXMS SYSLOG | Receiving windows events log
« on: September 09, 2018, 09:32:37 am »


I've configured NetXMS to act as central syslog server. Remote ubuntu and centos machines are sending information and everything is displayed correctly.

Regarding windows - i use nxlog agent on windows server 2016 machine.

Key configuration:

<Input in>
    Module  im_msvistalog
    Query       <QueryList>\
                    <Query Id="0">\
                        <Select Path="Application">*</Select>\
                        <Select Path="System">*</Select>\
                        <Select Path="Security">*</Select>\

<Processor proc>
   Module pm_transformer
   Exec $EventReceivedTime = integer($EventReceivedTime) / 1000000; to_json();
   OutputFormat syslog_rfc5424

<Output udp>
   Module  om_udp
   Host    xx.xx.xx.xx
   Port    514
   Exec $raw_event = replace($raw_event,"\r\n"," ");
   Exec $raw_event = replace($raw_event,"\t"," ");

<Route in_to_udp>
    Path    in => proc => udp

Example of syslog text message received:

Tag for such is marked as "1". Is there a way to configure that Tag will be some other received field ? 

Maybe there is some good template available how to configure better nxlog WEF to work with NetXMS ? Should i use other format as output there ?

Thank You in advance.
