Remark: This blog post is part of a series of posts explaining Royal Server and the new connection types we have introduced with Royal TS V3 beta (for Windows) and Royal TSX V2 beta (for OS X).

Here’s a complete list of our blog post series:

Working with Windows Events using Royal TSX and Royal Server

Often when you’re responsible for the health and performance of a server farm, your job involves checking the Windows Event Log for Errors and Warnings.

With Royal TS/X it’s easy to configure a Windows Events connection: specify the Computer Name, the Royal Server, Credentials, etc. as usual.

If you want to continuously check for specific entries in the EventLog you can enable the auto refresh feature:

Checking periodically and limiting the results

The Windows Events view allows you to filter the EventLog entries in two ways: a “Basic” and an “Advanced” filter.

For example, this configuration shows all Errors that occurred in the last 2 days:

If you need more flexibility, you can switch over to “Advanced” and enter your WMI query. As a starting point, it takes the configuration of the “Basic” tab but you can add your own complex queries:

Remark: This query is executed on the server, so only the necessary data is transported back to the client (Royal TS/X)


If you want to achieve the same thing with Royal TS (for Windows) or even share the Document – no problem!
