Hello,

I have to monitor "Clean restart" of our servers, therefore i use this senzor which should suit just well for this kind of onformation, but its doesnt. When i restart server for testing purpose - nothing happend with senzor. I think i have set up everything which should be but nothing change. There are another senzors like disk free space, etc on server which works, so network/permission problem is not my problem. Setting of senzor:

  • Log File - System
  • Event Type - information
  • Filter by Source - User32
  • Filter by ID - 1074
  • 60 seconds scanning interval
  • primary channel - New record
    • Enable Limits - Upper Error Limit (#/s) - 0,0001

Is there any limitations of senzor? Or is there something bad with setting?
Thanks for any advices

Hi there,

Do you see the Eventlog ID 1074 while manually open the Windows Event logs?

Best regards, Felix

Hi,

You need to enable the channel limits to change the status of the sensor as soon as a message arrives. You can click onto the "New Records" tab and enter the Upper Error Limit (#/s) 0,00000001, which will immediately trigger if the event occurs. This allows you to create a new notification trigger on this sensor to notify you directly, enter "0" for the time.

Best regards, Felix
