Monitoring log files

Is there a way to add duplicati failures to an event viewer log? This way I can use an RMM script to detect failure?

Welcome to the forum @Steven_Meyer

Scripting options can perhaps let you do that yourself, if that counts as a way. I don’t know all details.

The example shows appending the log file, but I suspect the event has some size cap to its contents.

Create a Custom Event in the Windows Event Viewer



There is no direct support for this. The logging system is built to allow multiple “taps”, so we could add an event viewer output.

Last I worked with the Event Viewer it was painful to set up a new source and target it from C#, but maybe that is easier now.
