The events table only shows ipMonitor events relating to the status of the monitor. It does not display the events captured by the Windows Event Log monitor.

If you need to see a history of the events captured by the Windows Event Log monitor, you can create a Text Log action to record the Information Messages that the monitor generates.

To add a Text Log action to an alert:

  1. Click the Configuration tab, and then click Alert List.
  2. Click an alert.
  3. Click Text Log from the Add Actionmenu.
  4. Type Text Log Action in the Action Namefield.
  5. Type the file name and directory for the log file in the File Name and Directory fields. For example:
    eventlog.txt
    C:\
  6. Check Send Information Messages
  7. Click OK
