This tab page allows you to control what kind of events to record in the Windows Event Logs.
The Logon Monitor Server Edition Control Panel Applet - Event Viewer Settings Tab
This section controls if logon and startup events are to be recorded to the Windows Event Viewer and what kind of information is included.
When this box is checked, Logon Monitor Server Edition will record logon activity to the Windows System Log, which you can view using Event Viewer.
Note: Even if this box is unchecked, the service will still record service events, warnings and errors to the log file. Unchecking this box will only prevent
user account logon information from being included.
User Logons - When checked, Logon Monitor Server Edition will record user logon events.
User Logoffs - When checked, Logon Monitor Server Edition will record user logoff events.
User Active/Idle Status - These events indicate when a logged-in user's session changes from Active to Idle
(for example, when their screen saver kicks in).
Service Startups - When checked, and entry will be made when the Logon Monitor Server Edition service starts.
Service Startups - When checked, and entry will be made when the Logon Monitor Server Edition service stops.
Completed Session Summaries - Checking this box will cause a summary entry to be entered in the log when a user's
login session ends. The summary will include information such as how long the user was logged in, how long the session was in Idle status, etc.
Events from this machine only
If this button is selected, the text log will only record events that occur on the local machine. Any incoming data records from other Logon Monitor
machines will be not be included (note that incoming events may still be collected into one of the other log types, such as CSV, database, or Event Viewer).
This allows you to individually determine which of the log types will collect what kind of information (and from where).
Events from this machine and any machine reporting to this machine
If this button is selected, the text log will record all events originating on the local machine, and
also include any data records reported to the service from other machines running Logon Monitor.
Record events using this machine's local time zone - Check this box if you want the timestamp on events in the log
to be recorded in the time zone that is set on the local machine. If the box is unchecked, events will be stamped with the UTC time.
- Use this button to open the Event Viewer where you can view the System log.
