Query event in Microsoft-Windows-Diagnostics-Performance



I need to capture the results of Microsoft-Windows-Diagnostics-Performance Event 100. I want the last occurrence of the event. This will give us the boot time for the system.

Is this possible with WMI? Or how would it be implemented as a probe?

Respectfully. Greg

Hi Greg,

Did you already take a look at our Windows Event Log Sensor? The Event Log (Windows API) sensor monitors Event Log entries using the Windows application programming interface.
If this Sensor does not suits you, you can also write a custom script with the EXE/Script Sensor.
