Greetings experts,

My Domino server is currently at R7.0.1 (will be 8.0.2 before the end of the month). I have software that can monitor the Windows operating system event viewer. Can an agent be coded to write to that event viewer?

Thank you.

Regards - Notes Rookie

Yes, you can download the code from here, even if not registered.
You'll see the link:

    DOWNLOAD (200,608 bytes) -- Code for PerformanceTrax application.

mbonaci - I downloaded the file, however, am not able to locate instructions on how to use this? Do you have any documentation? I also apologize for the delay in getting back to you. It has been an extremely busy week and have also been coughing up a lung (not very pleasant). I appreciate your help with this.

Thank you.

Regards - Notes Rookie.

Use API functions:
 - RegisterEventSource
 - GlobalAlloc
 - CopyMemory
 - ReportEvent
 - GlobalFree
 - DeregisterEventSource

You can see the example in function MakeReport (this part of the code):
	hEventLog = RegisterEventSource("", "PerformanceTrax")
	cbStringSize = Len(strMessage) + 1
	hMsgs = GlobalAlloc(&H40, cbStringSize)
	CopyMemory Byval hMsgs, Byval strMessage, cbStringSize
	iNumStrings = 1
	If ReportEvent(hEventLog, iLogType, 0, 8888, 0&, iNumStrings, cbStringSize, hMsgs,hMsgs) = 0 Then
		'I modified this part here cuz' you don't need logging into NSF db
		Msgbox "Error: Attempt to record error in Event Log failed"
		Call GlobalFree(hMsgs)
		DeregisterEventSource (hEventLog)				
		Exit Function				
	End If
	Call GlobalFree(hMsgs)
	DeregisterEventSource (hEventLog)
