Getting Data In

Can I collect Linux application logs with no UF installed?

I have a linux box that is very sensitive to agent overhead, resources, security, etc. Installing the UF on it is out of the question. However, I need to pull some nginx application logs. How can I accomplish this?  I tried searching for answers here and other places but I don't see a comprehensive answer.
Thank you in advance.

As it turns out. I was able to use rsyslog. Created a configuration file in /etc/rsyslogd and enabled the "imfile" module in /etc/rsyslog.conf.
