Windows Event Log - Critical Alert




I'm looking to setup a WMI Event Log Monitor sensor which alerts me to any 'critical' events. However there's no critical event type for me to choose, only error, warning, information, etc.

Is anybody able to offer any advice?

Thanks in advance Richard

Hi there,

This option is indeed not available for the native sensors. Using this custom sensor will allow you to monitor events in more details.

Kind regards,
