Overview

This article explains how to monitor Event Log entries that appear in the Applications and Services Logs section seen in Event Viewer, using the Windows Event Log Monitor.

Environment

  • Windows Vista and later
  • SAM 5.5 and later (RPC fetching added to Windows Event Log Monitor)

Steps

  1. Add or Edit a Windows Event Log Monitor.
  2. Within the Monitor, set the Fetching Method to RPC (Remote Procedure Call). This should be done as the Application and Service logs are not available in the WMI.
  3. Set the Log to Monitor to  Custom.
  4. Set the Custom Log to Monitor value to the path that leads to the Event Log you wish to monitor.

For example: If you wish to monitor the Task Scheduler logs, set the Log to Monitor to Microsoft-Windows-TaskScheduler/Operational.

  5.  Set the remainder of the criteria as needed.
