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.

To install nxlog, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install nxlog --version 2.9.1716

To upgrade nxlog, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
