Event Log Filters

Introduction (Step 1 of 6)

Filters are an essential part of EventSentry which allow you to configure a set of actions when an event occurs. You can setup a filter to forward events to a database or in case of emergency send an email or SMS message to your phone.

A filter can either be an include filter (and forward events to a configured action) or be an exclude filter (and prevent events from being forwarded to an action). Please note that exclude filters are always processed before include filters.

A fresh installation of EventSentry includes several preconfigured filters that should be enough to get started, however it is important to know how these filters work. In this tutorial I will explain the various types of filters and provided examples for each.
