Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting ethangalstad.me/nagios. Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

Advanced options for filtering and alerting on eventlog events. *requires .NET 2.0 to work
This check was designed to give greater control over the eventlog messages that do and do not get checked.

There are many advanced options, here are some examples:

* Selection criteria can be defined to filter from most eventlog fields
* Criteria can be defined using a FIELD:VALUE pairs
* AND/OR operations can be employed to create complex filtering rules
* Choose to INCLUDE or EXCLUDE eventlog records
* Define the time period for which events you are after
* Either trigger on most CRITICAL alert in defined time period or trigger on LASTEST event status (useful for checking of backups)

Special thanks to Matt Botting. :)

Any feedback (or bugs) would be appreciated.
