Although Windows has an inbuilt machined interface for registering and archiving important system events but unfortunately Windows gives very little support for doing anything meaningful to these important events which are being registered. So Windows fails to provide real time information about critical fault which you can manually recover if you get notified on time.
So any easy solution to this problem is by using a simple tool named EventLog Inspector. EventLog Inspector is a very handy application that can make your job easier by notifying about critical registered events to your email address or Syslog server and hence provides you real time notifications. This tool even allows you to store events from all Windows workstations on a single syslog server and get event notifications automatically.

All you need to do is just configure this tool according to your needs and then click on Start Service and then this service will automatically collect information about everything happening on a system that’s worth mentioning. This tool support both the IPV4 and IPV6 and it is absolutely free for non commercial use.
Click on Settings to pre-select the events which you want to include in this tool. Once including all the events you can even set the priority for the respective events. Then add your mail address or syslog server on which you want to receive notifications.
This tool will the provide administrators the capability to broadcast event log events to a dedicated syslog server or forward the events to a specified email address. There is also options available to select this tool to run as silent or interactive with user by displaying pop-up notification windows about the registered events.
Under the Reports you can edit settings for either getting report immediately once it encounter any event or you want a generalized common report even for all the workstation attached on network. You can also create specific filter rules for getting notifications for only specific desired events about which you know that they are critical and can spoil your whole network for hours if they are not notified immediately.
