NAME

       eventlogadm - push records into the Samba event log store

SYNOPSIS

       eventlogadm [-s] [-d] [-h] -o addsource EVENTLOG SOURCENAME MSGFILE

       eventlogadm [-s] [-d] [-h] -o write EVENTLOG

       eventlogadm [-s] [-d] [-h] -o dump EVENTLOG RECORD_NUMBER

DESCRIPTION

       This tool is part of the samba(1) suite.

       eventlogadm is a filter that accepts formatted event log records on standard input and
       writes them to the Samba event log store. Windows client can then manipulate these record
       using the usual administration tools.

OPTIONS

       -s FILENAME
           The -s option causes eventlogadm to load the configuration file given as FILENAME
           instead of the default one used by Samba.

       -d
           The -d option causes eventlogadm to emit debugging information.

       -o addsource EVENTLOG SOURCENAME MSGFILE
           The -o addsource option creates a new event log source.

       -o write EVENTLOG
           The -o write reads event log records from standard input and writes them to the Samba
           event log store named by EVENTLOG.

       -o dump EVENTLOG RECORD_NUMBER
           The -o dump reads event log records from a EVENTLOG tdb and dumps them to standard
           output on screen.

       -h
           Print usage information.

EVENTLOG RECORD FORMAT

       For the write operation, eventlogadm expects to be able to read structured records from
       standard input. These records are a sequence of lines, with the record key and data
       separated by a colon character. Records are separated by at least one or more blank line.

       The event log record field are:

       ·   LEN - This field should be 0, since eventlogadm will calculate this value.

       ·   RS1 - This must be the value 1699505740.

       ·   RCN - This field should be 0.

       ·   TMG - The time the eventlog record was generated; format is the number of seconds
           since 00:00:00 January 1, 1970, UTC.

       ·   TMW - The time the eventlog record was written; format is the number of seconds since
           00:00:00 January 1, 1970, UTC.

       ·   EID - The eventlog ID.

       ·   ETP - The event type -- one of "INFO", "ERROR", "WARNING", "AUDIT SUCCESS" or "AUDIT
           FAILURE".

       ·   ECT - The event category; this depends on the message file. It is primarily used as a
           means of filtering in the eventlog viewer.

       ·   RS2 - This field should be 0.

       ·   CRN - This field should be 0.

       ·   USL - This field should be 0.

       ·   SRC - This field contains the source name associated with the event log. If a message
           file is used with an event log, there will be a registry entry for associating this
           source name with a message file DLL.

       ·   SRN - The name of the machine on which the eventlog was generated. This is typically
           the host name.

       ·   STR - The text associated with the eventlog. There may be more than one string in a
           record.

       ·   DAT - This field should be left unset.

EXAMPLES

       An example of the record format accepted by eventlogadm:

                LEN: 0
                RS1: 1699505740
                RCN: 0
                TMG: 1128631322
                TMW: 1128631322
                EID: 1000
                ETP: INFO
                ECT: 0
                RS2: 0
                CRN: 0
                USL: 0
                SRC: cron
                SRN: dmlinux
                STR: (root) CMD ( rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.hourly)
                DAT:

       Set up an eventlog source, specifying a message file DLL:

                eventlogadm -o addsource Application MyApplication | \\
                     %SystemRoot%/system32/MyApplication.dll

       Filter messages from the system log into an event log:

                tail -f /var/log/messages | \\
                     my_program_to_parse_into_eventlog_records | \\
                          eventlogadm SystemLogEvents
