Event Logs (Query, Write)

Use the Task Query Event Logs to view the event logs of Agents for errors and warnings. Performing this Task ensures that historical event logs are stored, whereas this data is normally lost when the Microsoft Event Viewer reaches its maximum size.

Use the Task Write Event Log to write an entry in an Agent's Application Event Log, Security Event Log or System Event Log.

  • In the Log name field, provide the name of the Microsoft Event Log in which the event should be written. If the name provided does not match an existing log on the Agent, the system will create a new log with the specified name.
  • In the Entry type field, please type one of the following texts:
    • Error
    • Information
    • FailureAudit
    • SuccessAudit
    • Warning
