Windows Event Log Notification

4 posts in this topic

I have a specialized program that runs on my server. This program from time to time hangs and stops working. I would like to write a script to check the event log for this application hang error and then send out a notification to me. I'm not sure how to get this started. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I did find those functions. I'm having a difficult time putting them into a more specific format. Like...

If this error occurs in this time frame, run a program.

I'm new at scripting, but have had some limited success. I was hoping for a little more help than "See the help file".

Pick one of the functions (i.e. _EventLog__Count), try out the example script in the help file and use the forum search on it. There have been running examples posted, some by me, some by smarter people.

Create a basic loop that just notices when the count of events changes, and work up from there. When you get stuck, post what you've got for more help.

That's not just "See the help file", that happens to be where the working examples are!
