RSyslog Windows Agent 3.0 Released

Adiscon is proud to announce the 3.0 release of RSyslog Windows Agent.

This new major release adds full support for Windows 2012 R2 and also has been verified to work on Windows 10 preview versions.

The new major version is a milestone in many ways. Most important the performance of the core engine has been considerably increased. All existing configurations will benefit from this. Also a new Configuration Client has been added which has been rewritten using the .Net Framework (Like the InterActive Syslog Viewer). With the new Configuration Client, we also introduce support for a new file based configuration format (as an alternative to the registry-based method). RSyslog Windows Agent can now run from a configuration file and save it state values
into files.

We also extended the classic EventLog Monitor to support multiple dynamic *.evt files for NetApp customers.

Detailed information can be found in the version history below.

Build-IDs: Service 3.0.130, Client 3.0.201

Features

  • Faster core engine
  • New Configuration Client running on Microsoft .Net Framework. If wanted, the old client application can be installed manually as "RSyslog Windows Agent Legacy Client".
  • The Agent can be switched from registry to file based configuration support. Requires usage of the new configuration client.
  • EventLog Monitor Classic(V1): Support for dynamic Eventlog files added.
    Kindly use an asterix (*) in the eventlog filename to activate it, for example: \\netappdevice\c$\etc\log\adtlog.*.evt
    When activated, EventLog Monitor will process all matching files automatically. The feature was primary added for NETAPP users who have dynamic filenames.
  • New System Property added to created UUID’s called "$NEWUUID". Generates a random generated 128Bit UUID (Universally Unique Identifiers).
