Event Log Query Tool (Elogdmp.exe)

Microsoft has released a command-line tool Elogdmp.exe, Event Log Query Tool, as
part of the Windows 2000 Resource Kit. You can use Elogdmp to display information from the Event Viewer logs of a
local or remote Windows 2000-based computer. This tool dumps the contents
of the log in comma-delimited format to the screen or to a file. You can then
search the output to find and to view the information that you want. The
information that Elogdmp displays include the following:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Source
  • Type
  • Category
  • Event ID
  • User
  • Computer
For example, to display the contents of the DNS server
log on a computer named Server2 and to redirect the output to a file named
Dnslog.txt, in the E:\Logs folder:
elogdmp server2 DNS
Server > e:\logs\dnslog.txt


contents of the DNS Server log of Server2 are written to the E:\Logs\Dnslog.txt
file in comma-delimited format.
