Getting Event Data From Windows Event Logs

by Apr 30, 2013

We're trialing (soon to purchase) up.time and I have a question:

Is it possible to include in a notification the text that's included in the “Event Data” field(?) that's part of a Windows Event Log error message? Here's our situation:

We have a Windows service that manages other services (child services, I guess). When one of the child services generates an error, the Windows Event Log indicates that a failure occurred in the “master” service, but includes the child service name in the Event Data field of the error message.

I'd like to have the uptime notification include the Event Data text as part of the notification, if possible.

Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated!
