To enable your third party application to communicate with the Event Manager services, you need to copy two *.exe files from your Web Server to the third party system.
There are two executables available to run from your network management tool: PostEvent.exe and SendEvent.exe. PostEvent.exe creates an event that is processed when the Event Manager service next polls, SendEvent.exe processes the event immediately. We recommended that you use PostEvent.exe in normal use.
For information about configuring command line outputs from your third party application, see the documentation provided with that application.
PostEvent "<Event Source>" "<Event Type>" "<Event Title>" "[<Description>]" "[<Configuration Item>]" "[<Priority>]" "[<Status>]" "[<Parameter1>]" "[<Parameter2>]" "[<Parameter3>]"
The parameters must be in the order specified above. Event Source, Event Type, and Event Title are mandatory parameters. The remaining parameters, shown in [square brackets], are optional.
PostEvent "SolarWinds" "SystemDown" "Server Down" "Server is Down" "WebServer1" "" "Status_BAD"
Uses the PostEvent executable, and sets values for Event Source, Event Type, Event Title, Description, and Configuration Item, sets no value for Priority, and then sets a value for Status.
The Event Source, Event Title and Description parameters can be any text of your choice to describe the event. These are then used in the event conditions you configure in the Event Manager component.
