Windows Event Log

The winlog input plugin allows you to read Windows Event Log.

Configuration Parameters

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.

Configuration Examples

Configuration File

Here is a minimum configuration example.

    Name         winlog
    Channels     Setup,Windows PowerShell
    Interval_Sec 1
    DB           winlog.sqlite

    Name   stdout
    Match  *

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.

Command Line

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
