With the recent introduction of syslog parsing and increased attention in the Log Analytics space, is there any work being done on a Windows Event Log parser? If not, would it be appropriate to either reopen issue 2747 on github, or for me to open a new issue as a feature request?
Hi cruscio, Thanks for the note! This would make an excellent feature request for Telegraf. I suggest opening a new issue (instead of reviving the closed one) using the feature request template https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/issues/new?template=Feature_request.md and then we can take a look at prioritizing it. This will also allow other Telegraf users to comment and add their support.
I opened an issue about this
I did the same a couple weeks ago. Neglected to update this posting, unfortunately.
