Can WMI/API Event log sensor monitor Critical events




I have noticed that the WMI/API Event log sensors have options to monitor Error/Warning/Information etc. type events in the Event log. However, I would like to know if there was a way to monitor the Critical event entries in the Event log. Appreciate any leads on this.

Regards, Ankan
