Event Log

Description

The Windows Event Log provides a standard, centralized way for applications (and the operating system) to record important software and hardware events. This enables data from different applications to easily be merged into one complete report, eliminating the need for system administrators to check a variety of sources in order to diagnose problems.

Centralized logging is further enhanced with the use of AutoMate's Event Log action allowing custom events to be logged in a purely automated fashion. Developers can control the type of event to log by specifying a level value such as warning or error. Furthermore,this action can be used along with the Event Log trigger as a way to launch other tasks upon arrival of a specific event.
