Unicode Transformation Format (UTF-8) mode on Windows

Unicode Transformation Format (UTF-8) encoding is a variable length character encoding for Unicode. It can represent any character in the Unicode standard.

If you are running the probe on a Windows machine and want to use UTF-8 mode, you must set the -utf8enabled command line option. This controls how the inputs to the probe (for example, the properties file, rules file, and event stream) are encoded and how the probe encodes its output (for example, log files and events). When -utf8enabled is set to TRUE, these inputs are UTF8 encoded.

Note: This command line option is only used by the Windows version of this probe.
