WMI Eventlog - Event ID syntax for lists



Is there a syntax for adding a list of three Event IDs numbers that we wish to monitor? I tried a comma separated list, but that resulted in a warning: 80041017: The query was not syntactically valid.

This isn't currently possible with PRTG.

why does PAESSLER play hide and seek with the users? The comma seperated list is not working for the Windows API Event Log sensor even with version 12.2.2 (most recent in Sept / 2012) , allthough the documentation and the online/inline help tells something different.

It took me quite some time to chase this. So i thought it's a good idea to have a look at the KB .... this entry is what i found. It turns me kind of grumpy.....

Thorsten, I apologize for this fault in the documentation, we do of course not 'play hide and seek' with users, but are merely humans, who tend do make a mistake every now and then, even though we try as best and hard as we can to not to.
