Announcing EventSentry Light v2.93.1

We’re excited to announce a new version of EventSentry Light, our free server and log monitoring solution.

EventSentry Light is:

  • completely free
  • does not show ads
  • does not require a registration
  • does not expire

To see all the new features which were added to full release EventSentry v2.93.1, see “EventSentry v2.93.1 – Part 1” and “EventSentry v2.93.1 – Part 2“.


In addition to the new features and bug fixes of the 2.93.1 release, we also decided to make the latest version of EventSentry Light even more useful for sysadmins by enabling several features which were previously only available in the full version:

  • Process Action is now available, so you can now launch scripts and/or processes as a response to event log entries
  • Custom event logs as well as custom event log channels (Windows 2008 and later) can now be monitored
  • Services can now be controlled in addition to just being monitored
  • All event logs can now be backed up
  • Event Log backups can be compressed
  • NTP (Network Time Protocol) feature can now adjust the local time
  • Limits can now be applied to actions
  • Email actions: All features are now available
  • Import/Export feature in management console is now available
  • Variables support is now available

In addition to the above new functionality, we also increased many of the existing limitations:

  • # of event log filters: Increased to 5 (from 4)
  • # of monitored services: Increased to 6 (from 4)
  • # of event log backup schedules: Increased to 3 (from 2)
  • # of actions: Increased to 3 (from 2)

EventSentry Light v2.93.1 is a significant upgrade from v2.92, with many new features now available to light users. Remember, with EventSentry Light you can:

So if you’re running EventSentry Light v2.92 or older then the time to upgrade is now! If you’re not using EventSentry at all, then the time to install it is now – you have nothing to loose.
