This would be awesome if I could implement some XML parsing... we have logs from a few servers which are essentially XML that are forward to machine syslog -> syslog'd to Nitro. Are you saying we should be able to parse that? From your example above, how is that sample data making it's way in to the receiver?? syslog or some other transport?
Thanks a bunch,
Most often XML-formatted logs come in via a file import (via FTP, SCP, etc.) Syslog was designed for relatively smallish messages, and can get cranky when you try to send large messages, depending on your implementation. That said, I see no reason why syslog wouldn't work. In my example, the sample you see was simply manually copied/pasted from a sample file directly into the ASP editor.
Scott, with the ASP built, how does one get the log in if its a log from a custom piece of software and from and airgap network? Could I just manually upload the long somewhere? I was looking through the data sources and of course, because its custom software, there are no suitable options.
