This handy script can monitor for keywords or eventids in a specified time period. Easily run this daily to catch windows events you want to be alerted for.


Import-Module $env:SyncroModule
# put in queries like "query1","query2" to search the eventlog
# you can reference a ton of good windows events to monitor here
$queryWords = @("has a bad block","The driver detected a controller error",'The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable')
# you can use eventids here like; $queryEventIds = 7,51
$queryEventIds = 51,29,50,55,7101
# [DateTime]::Now is "Now", then addMinutes "negative" 1440 is saying "subtract 1 day"
#  this is getting events for the last 24 hours. Run this daily.
$startTime = [DateTime]::Now.AddMinutes(-1440)
#For the levels below, add them with a comma
#Verbose 5
#Informational 4
#Warning 3
#Error 2
#Critical 1
#LogAlways  0
