Powerchute Personal Edition 3.0.2 Windows Event ID list

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/23/2016


Is there a list of the Windows event IDs PE can generate?  I am writing a monitoring policy and have been unable to find more than a couple scattered around the web.

I combined that with what I had and here are the results in case anyone else ever needs them.  I also included the list as a spreadsheet.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

There is not a list available however if you are looking to poll the log for PCPE events you can poll by source i.e. APC Data Service and APC UPS Service.

Thanks, but I am looking for event IDs so I can monitor for them and create alerts.  I could capture all the events and build a list but it could take a long time to build a complete list because a lot of events occur very rarely.

I find it incredible that a) such a list doesn't exist and b) I am the only person who wants one but apparently that's the case.

Great work!
Many thanks.

From this thread I get that few people care WHY their UPS is eventing.

Mine did it 15 time in last 20 hours...
Having had previous HDW issues I started wondering how bad was my power furniture/voltage....

..... found this OnLine Utility by a User to get events :

Haha.  I was about to say something about how long it took you to implement until I saw the last line of your message.

Anyway, glad it helped.  If you find any errors or omissions let me know so I can update my list.

Just to share some new finding:
HWinfo64 (it's a monitor) can read real-time data from APC and display it...

To monitor the "total power flowing trough the UPS"  in a running graph, I'm Using MSIAfterburner  with fantastic result !

But there are many other UPS info available in HWinfo64.

(HWinfo64 may pass all his data to MSIAfterburner, that allow them to be presented in a running graph)

Here is a pic from MSIAfterburner... and one from HWinfo64
In both the small arrow point to the live APC BX1400 power out.
