The winlog input plugin allows you to read Windows Event Log.
The plugin supports the following configuration parameters:
A comma-separated list of channels to read from.
Set the polling interval for each channel. (optional)
Set the path to save the read offsets. (optional)
Note that if you do not set db, the plugin will read channels from the beginning on each startup.
Here is a minimum configuration example.
[INPUT]Name winlogChannels Setup,Windows PowerShellInterval_Sec 1DB winlog.sqlite[OUTPUT]Name stdoutMatch *
Note that some Windows Event Log channels (like
Security) requires an admin privilege for reading. In this case, you need to run fluent-bit as an administrator.
If you want to do a quick test, you can run this plugin from the command line.
$ fluent-bit -i winlog -p 'channels=Setup' -o stdout
