nteventlog(3erl)		     Erlang Module Definition			 nteventlog(3erl)

       nteventlog - Interface to Windows Event Log

       nteventlog provides a generic interface to the Windows event log. It is part of the OS_Mon
       application, see os_mon(7) . Available for Windows versions where the event log is  avail-
       able.  That  is,  not  for  Windows 98 and some other older Windows versions, but for most
       (all?) newer Windows versions.

       This module is used as the Windows backend for os_sup , see os_sup(3erl) .

       To retain backwards compatibility, this module can also be  used  to  start  a  standalone
       nteventlog  process which is not part of the OS_Mon supervision tree. When starting such a
       process, the user has to supply an identifier as well as a callback function to handle the

       The  identifier,  an  arbitrary string, should be reused whenever the same application (or
       node) wants to start the process. nteventlog  is  informed  about  all  events  that  have
       arrived	to  the  eventlog  since the last accepted message for the current identifier. As
       long as the same identifier is used, the same eventlog record will not be sent to ntevent-
       log more than once (with the exception of when graved system failures arise, in which case
       the last records written before the failure may be sent to Erlang again after reboot).

       If the event log is configured to wrap around automatically, records that have arrived  to
       the  log and been overwritten when nteventlog was not running are lost. It however detects
       this state and loses no records that are not overwritten.

       The callback function works as described in os_sup(3erl) .

       start(Identifier, MFA) -> Result
       start_link(Identifier, MFA) -> Result

	      Types  Identifier = string() | atom()
		     MFA = {Mod, Func, Args}
		     Mod = Func = atom()
		     Args = [term()]
		     Result = {ok, Pid} | {error, {already_started, Pid}}
		     Pid = pid()

	      This function starts the standalone nteventlog  process  and,  if  start_link/2  is
	      used, links to it.

	      Identifier is an identifier as described above.

	      MFA is the supplied callback function. When nteventlog receives information about a
	      new event, this function will be called as  apply(Mod,  Func,  [Event|Args])  where
	      Event is a tuple

       stop() -> stopped

	      Types  Result = stopped

	      Stops  nteventlog  . Usually only used during development. The server does not have
	      to be shut down gracefully to maintain its state.
