windows-eventlog

Native win32 module to log messages to the Windows EventLog

Windows Event Log Js

Native node.js module to log messages to the Windows Event Log.

$ npm install windows-eventlog

You need to have a compatible Visual Studio compiler installed, e.g.:

When using the library like this:

  var EventLog = require('windows-eventlog').EventLog;
  var myeventlog = new EventLog("MyAppName");
  myeventlog.logSync("warn", "a message");
  myeventlog.logSync("a message"); // severity defaults to "info" 
  myeventlog.log("error", "a message", function(err) {
    if (err) throw err;
  });

you will see something like this:

This creates an instance of the EventLog with the given source. You can optionally pass a logName, defaults to "Application".

If the source doesn't exist in the event log database it will be created with the givne log name.

This method will create an entry in the event log with the given message.

Optionally you can specify a severity a.k.a log entry type. The possible values are "info", "warn" and "error".

Same as eventLog.log() except that it blocks.

This module is a native module using Windows' API function ReportEvent.

Node.js applications using this module do not require an elevated account to log to the Windows Event Log.
