weekly snapFeb 8-12 was a week quietly dedicated to NSClient++ with a look at Windows Eventlog, CheckMultiple, and the success of the NSClient++ website.
Michael S began part 4 of his NSClient++ series by introducing the filter method to monitor Windows Eventlog. With an example query showing day old system log error (or unsuccessful) messages created by a service, he pointed to the filter language documentation for a wealth of parameters. Michael also recommended CheckMultiple for compound queries, giving an example review of disk utilisation in percentage and absolute terms. Of note here, is that results show the worst sub-check status, as a combination of both checks in the performance data to ensure the individual results are available to view.
We also took our hats off to the NSClient++ project and maintainer, Michael Medin for its ever growing website traffic load, downloads and popularity.
