Overview

The EventLog2MongoDB Service registers a windows event log listener and forwards those events to a mongo db. The service works in MongoDB by using 3 configuration files:
  1. app.config
    1. Mongo DB Connection Details
    2. Collection Names for the entities required for the Service (one collection to store the events, and one collection to record the event record id's of consumed events)
  2. EventLogQuery.txt - This text file contains the Microsoft Event Log Query that you wish to subscribe to the event log with.
  3. EventLogQueryCatchup.txt - This text file is similar to the previous, however, contains a parameter for the eventRecordId in order to retrieve any events on the computer if the service was offline.
