Centralize Your Network's Windows Event Logs
Windows event logs can be found in the Windows event viewer and contain vital information about everything on your Windows computer. It keeps log files for errors, information messages, and warnings and is frequently used for troubleshooting any kind of Windows computer problem. Lansweeper's Event log scanner will automatically scan all error events from Windows computers. Additionally, you can enable automatic scanning of other types of event log events.
Keep a Close Eye on Your Windows Event Logs
Lansweeper allows you to scan event logs as frequently or irregularly as needed. While event logs are scanned during every Windows scan, you can also lower this frequency to once a week, once a day or less.
Vital assets often need to be frequently scanned to ensure the events scanned are always up to date and to alert staff in case any issues arise. Lansweeper includes two special scanning targets which only scan event log information. You can either scan a specific Windows asset or provide an active directory path for event log scanning. Event log scanning targets will scan the specified assets based on a set interval.
Manage Your Network with Event Log Information
Retrieved event log information can be viewed on the asset's page or by using the built-in reports. However, to utilize the full potential of event logs, you can create your own custom reports. Create a list of all success audits, failure audits, Windows lockouts, or get an overview of workstations that recently crashed. As long as the information is available in the Windows event log, you can report on it.
Get Notified When Critical Events Are Logged
Create event log alerts to notify you as soon as a critical event is scanned. By combining Windows event log scanning targets and alerts, you will be notified within minutes when vital assets are having difficulties.
