You can use Event Viewer for more than sorting already logged events on a local computer or creating custom views. When you add the Event Viewer snap-in to an MMC, you can also opt to view other computers’ event logs. As you have likely experienced, though, these logs (whether they are local or on remote computers) are cumbersome because they contain so many entries. When you only want to receive information about specific events from other computers, you create event subscriptions. There are a few terms to know first, though:
