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
