Event Log Explorer
Event Log Explorer is a professional software application that helps users monitor and analyse Windows event logs.
Although it comes packed with many useful functions, it boasts a clean and straightforward layout that gives users the possibility to add a new computer for monitoring and create groups.
Plus, it offers step-by-step assistance for helping you add multiple computers to the list, and this approach comes in handy especially for less experienced users.
What’s more, you can select the server types, namely Windows NT workstations and servers, domain controllers (PDC, BDC), standalone, terminal or SQL server, and others.
Event Log Explorer allows you to work with multiple panes, view event logs on different computers, group PCs so you can easily open the event log for the selected computer, merge several logs into a single view, as well as archive large event logs.
Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to view the description and binary data of each event, sort events, filter events in the list by various criteria, perform search operations, create bookmarks, schedule tasks, and use command-line operations.
You can print the generated information, or export it to HTML, XLS, or other file formats, create analytical reports, get informed about new events by receiving notifications, view computer properties, and customize the events in terms of foreground and background colour, and font style.
Last but not least, it is important to mention that the program offers support for both APIs (Legacy Event Log API and New Event Log API) to access Windows event logs, and allows you to apply pre-filtering options for events during the log loading process (date and type), backup data, and store the user credentials for connecting to remote computers.
All in all, New Event Log API bundles a complete suite of tools for helping you monitor event logs efficiently.
