If you feel this title is very familiar to you it's because I have stolen the title from Kevin Marquette. I'm in awe of his posts that take you thru topic from beginning till the end. No splitting, no hiding anything, everything on a plate, in a single post. That's why I've decided to write a post that will take you on a trip on how to work with Event Logs, something that is an internal part of Windows Administration. If you've never worked with Events and you're in IT, you most likely should make an effort to find out what it is and how you can eat it. After you read this pretty lengthy blog post you may also be interested in The only PowerShell Command you will ever need to find out who did what in Active Directory.

This information is typically used by programmers for debugging purposes, and additionally, depending on the type and detail of information contained in a trace log, by experienced system administrators or technical-support personnel and by software monitoring tools to diagnose common problems with software. There is not always a clear distinction between tracing and other forms of logging , except that the term tracing is almost never applied to logging that is a functional requirement of a program therefore excluding logging of data from an external source, such as data acquisition in a high-energy physics experiment, and write-ahead logging. Logs that record program usage such as a server log or operating-system events primarily of interest to a system administrator see for example Event Viewer fall into a terminological gray area.
