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:

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

       o   RS1 - This must be the value	1699505740.

       o   RCN - This field should be 0.

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

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

       o   EID - The eventlog ID.

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

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

       o   RS2 - This field should be 0.

       o   CRN - This field should be 0.

       o   USL - This field should be 0.

       o   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.

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

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

       o   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

       Andrew Tridgell.	Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
