Am a Linux guy and trying to support security monitoring for Windows devices.
Am trying to find a programmatic way of pulling security and application logs
from Windows machine. OR it can be a push model where windows can generate
events/traps. It should all be built-in in windows with no external tool installation.
Looks like there is no NATIVE built in asynchronous event reporting from
It can be in terms of SNMP Traps as well.
Given this, one can use Samba apis (rpcclient) to periodically pull the event logs
from windows. Is there any better way to accomplish the same programmatically
using Push or Pull model to get the security and application logs on windows from Linux ?
