New WHS Addin For Event Monitoring

Dave Mercer has developed a cool new add-in to monitor the events on your WHS. He posted this to the WHS forums:

I’ve developed a new Add-In. It’s an NT-Service that listens on event logs and sends emails when events match specific RegEx’s. Its got a WHS Tab Extender for configuration. This is just a first version. I plan on enhancing it with monitoring of home server events and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring.

I’d really appreciate some comments and feedback so that I cane improve it. There’s a form mailer on my website to contact me.

You can find it at:

Check it out, its really useful.
