Event Log Rules
By using this option, you can monitor various windows events. The events received will be displayed in the Windows Monitor details page. Also, you can generate alarms in SQLDBManager Plus based on the configured rule. For eg., When an event of type Error occurs in System Log, you can generate a critical alarm which inturn will affect the Health of the Windows Monitor.
Note: Event Log Monitoring is available in Windows Installations and also in WMI mode of monitoring only.
For receiving windows events, you have to configure Event Log Rules. You can get notified by the events from the following Log Files
Application (By default Event Log rule is configured for any Application Error)
Security (By default Event Log rule is configured for any Security Failure)
File Replication Service
Follow the steps given below, to add a new Event Log rule:
Under Admin tab, click on Event Log Rules
Click on 'Add New Rule'
Enter the Rule Name of your choice
Enter the Event ID associated with the Event Log File (not mandatory)
Choose the Event Type - Error, warning, Information. In case of Security Events, the types would vary between Success Audit and Failure Audit
At the outset, you can enable or disable the Rule Status
By clicking on Advanced Options, you can formulate the rule more specifically by associating the source, category, username, and description content of the incoming event to the alarm severity.
For Eg., select Log File as [System] and Event Type as [Error] , to get all
events of type Error from System Log File.
