EventTriggers is a program that you can execute from the Windows 2003 command line. Think of the following scenario, your server is playing up, a fact confirmed by lots of red dots in the Event Viewer. As a top techie, you want to track down what could be happening. However, being a busy person, you cannot just hang around the server, so you cunningly create a trigger.
With EventTriggers, you can automatically fire off a batch file or vbs script which captures useful information. Another idea is ‘self heal’, where your script cures the problem and stops it reoccurring. As with many of these command line programs, EventTrigger’s syntax can be viscous so tune into the rhythm of its many switches.
