Reading logs from asset in XEL format


New Life Form
Good afternoon,

I'd like to read logs from an asset in XEL format. XEL format (from what I've taken a look with a text format) seems to be binary or some sort of BLOB format. A bit of research shows that it's an eXtended Event Log (.xel) format. 

It's a DB Audit from an SQL Server, but we cannot use the NXLOG method because database-level audits aren't supported on the SQL Server 2012 Standard edition, just server-level which is not enough for the requirement.

What would be the best approach to read this file?

  • If I need to export manually each time I want to export logs then is of no use I believe.

    I've asked the customer to export the logs in another format and see.
