Pinned topic IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.2.3 Fixpack 1 Windows OS Agent
I would like to know HOW/Where can I enabled this feature. I would like to start monitoring "TEST" application Event log(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\TEST). The user guide only talks about the feature availability but doesn't explain how we can activate it so that data from the custom (TEST) log can be displayed in the Monitored Log workspace.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

And in case that link doesn't work. Here's the text from the page. Apologies in advance if copy-n-paste direct from IBM sources isn't allowed.
For version 6.2.3 Fix Pack 1 of the Monitoring Agent for Windows OS, the following enhancements have been made:
Support for monitoring any event log in the Windows Event Viewer, instead of only the five standard Windows event logs: Application, System, Security, DNS Server, and Directory Service or File Replication Service.
You must specify the exact name of the event log you want to monitor. The Windows Registry Editor lists the event log name as a key in either of two paths:
The name of the event log is the key listed under the Eventlog or Channels key. For example, the Application event log has the key:

Yeah, the documentation is not really helpfull.
You have to specify the additional eventlog you want to monitor in KNTENV as described in the doc.
Afterwards you can set up Situations to monitor this log file. The bad - and propably confusing- point is the the additional log does not appear in the logs Workspaces, hence there is not an automatically browsing possible as it is available with the standard logs.
Hence just create a dummy sit against this additional log to verify the monitoring is working.
Probably custom queries are working but i did'nt tested that.
