Add-In: Event Viewer

Benjamin Robichaud has updated his add-in that displays the Windows Event Logs, also known as Event Viewer in the Home Server Console. Once installed you can choose which log to monitor, filter the entries with Show All, Warnings, Errors, etc and clear the logs as well.


Version includes the following:

  • Fix : only displays the last 500 entries of a Log, thus preventing the console to freeze while iterating over too many items.
  • Fix : ‘Show Relevant’ now only displays ‘Warnings’ and ‘Errors’.
  • New : ‘Show Unknowns’ is now available under the ‘Filter’ dropdown box.
  • New : displays the event ID, per request. 

Event viewer can be downloaded from here.

Thanks to We Got Served for the update details.

    Finally, this third party add-in is able to prevent the console from freezing. About time….

    I still get a “freeze” when trying to view the Security log and then eventually I get disconnected from the console. Any ideas?

    Okay, I diagnosed it. The Event Log Viewer (native one) said that System and Security logs were corrupt. I deleted them and now it’s okay. I wonder if there’s a good way to detect that they’re corrupt with the Add-in?
