Using Filter Text to match specific events

Introduction (Step 1 of 6)

Getting Started

The initial setup of EventSentry contains several packages that outline common scenarios many of our customers face. When an error is detected on a hard disk most administrators like to know about it. However, there may be some events that are a bit more specific to your network that you would like to receive. If you are monitoring for certain events that have a unique source or event id this process may not be that difficult. On the other hand, if you have ever monitored for an event that shares similar information with another event (i.e. source, category, or id) or it is an event found in the Security log, you will realize the importance of being able to filter by the text in the message.
