WMI Event Log Sensor




I would like to know how I can set up this sensor to monitor the Windows System log and specifically monitor logs for any NTFS, DISK, or RAID warnings and or errors? I have read the instructions so any help with this setup specifically would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

You need to add the desired IDs for the error that you want to see in this sensor. Please note that you need to create a sensor for one ID you want to monitor.
