NXLog Documentation

Installing on RHEL 6 & 7

The .rpm package of NXLog Manager is signed with a PGP key. For details on how to verify you package, see the NXLog digital signature verification section in the NXLog User Guide.

Install the .rpm package with the following command:

# yum install nxlog-manager-X.X.XXXX-1.noarch.rpm

Version 4.x of NXLog Manager requires java-1.7.0-openjdk to be installed on the system.

Version 5.x requires either java-1.7.0-openjdk or java-1.8.0-openjdk.

Version 6.x requires either java-1.8.0-openjdk or java-11-openjdk to be installed on the operating system.

NXLog Manager will fail to start if Java is not installed or the correct version of Java is not selected.

To select the default version of Java on your system, use the command:

# alternatives --config java

To access the web interface from another host, the firewall rules should allow access to port 9090 from the external network:

# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 9090 -j ACCEPT

Or completely remove all firewall rules while testing:

# iptables -F
Make sure that your hostname and DNS settings are set up correctly, to avoid problems with NXLog Manager. Refer to host setup common issues for more information.
