Event ID 41: Kernel power error


Kernel power errors get logged when your system didn't shut down properly. You will see the message "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly." 


These errors are usually caused by issues in power supply. They are a concern especially when they occur on your critical assets. Your web servers and other critical servers must always be up and running. So, it is a must to track this event and be alerted if it occurs, so you can quickly take steps to resolve it. 


With EventLog Analyzer, set up an alert profile that notifies administrators in real-time whenever the kernel power error occurs for critical resources. The solution sends out an instant email or SMS notification whenever a critical resource goes down due to the kernel power error, so it can be fixed as soon as possible.
