Event Parameters refresher

Well I’ve finally had the opportunity to use Event parameters in a MP, and it was quite easy. The request was to send an alert when a specific statement was written to an event log event description. Using these two resources it was quite easy, Kevin Holman’s article on this a few years ago, and Stefan Stranger’s article. One bump I ran into was using LogParser Tool on an event log that was not one of the standard 3 event logs (i.e. Security, Application, System) It was a log several deep in the UI. I was not sure how to tell LogParser to get this log, so I worked around this problem by exporting the specific event log I wanted to query, to a file, and just queried the file. Worked like a champ.

I also found an interesting way to get event parameters using PowerShell on Jonathan Horner’s bog.
