Monitored Components

For details on monitors, see SAM Component Monitor Types.

Windows Event Log Monitor.

This component monitor can use both WMI and RPC communication to scan Windows Event Logs for recent events matching your defined criteria. Events are considered recent based on the age of the event as compared to the application polling frequency. If a matching event is found, the component monitor changes status.

The component monitor eventually returns to its original status as time passes so you may not notice a matching event unless you create an alert to email you when the component goes down.

This component monitor uses the following ports:

  • TCP/135
  • RPC/named pipes (NP) TCP 139
  • RPC/NP TCP 445
  • RPC/NP UDP 137
  • RPC/NP UDP 138
